What You’ll Learn
Theatre is a collaborative art form, the ultimate team building activity. You have the opportunity to build a program that suits your needs. We are large enough to support your interests and small enough to give you room to participate.
The program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre. Our alliance with Geva Theatre Center, Rochester’s professional theatre, is a rare undergraduate alliance.
We offer an intensive theatre experience in a liberal arts environment. You’ll learn stagecraft, acting, design and stage management as a foundation for your studies. You’ll also take performance and dramatic literature courses to suit your theatre interests.
All theatre majors take part in the production program of the department. Through this and other experiences, you’ll hone your communication and organizational skills, technical knowledge, and collaborative expertise.Curriculum & Learning Outcomes
We recommend submitting first-year applications in October or early November. We decide your admission once you complete your application.

Geva Theatre Alliance
A major component of our program is our relationship with Geva Theatre, Rochester’s professional (union) regional theatre company. Every semester, artists from Geva are on campus teaching, lecturing, and offering workshops. And every semester Brockport students serve as interns at Geva, working side-by-side with the professional company.
