The Theatre Arts Department, produces several shows each season, both on the main stage and in studio (workshop) settings. The opportunities allow students to put classroom theory into practice as part of the regular season of Central Theatre Ensemble, the production wing of the department. To further prepare for future employment or graduate school, all students are strongly encouraged to pursue off-campus practical experience through TH 490: Cooperative Education (Internship).
