What can I do and where will it take me?
Although all of the courses and productions at PC are open to all students, we build our program and our plays around our majors and minors. Because we are a small department we know all of our students and choose the themes to explore by their expressed interests. The major in theatre studies consists of 33 hours of course work and a 1 hour internship, augmented by your experiences in the theatre as we create our new work. As a theatre major or minor, you will choose an adviser who will help you personalize your course of study.
We have an ongoing relationship with Theatre 99 in Charleston and regularly take our Devised Theatre and Theatre for Social Change classes there for workshops in script development. We subsidize trips for our majors to see theatre in Greenville, Charleston and Atlanta as part of their course work and we regularly participate in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.
