Theatre Major: Secondary Theatre Education Option B.A.
What is the secondary theatre education option?
One of only a few programs of its kind in the country, UNH’s secondary theatre education option will prepare you to teach theatre and direct productions working with students in kindergarten through 12th grade. You’ll study the history of theatre and directing, the elements of design and theatre technology, and methods of teaching in theatre. You’ll gain hands-on practical teaching experience with K-12 students. As you complete your studies, you’ll have the option to enter theatre education directly, or pursue a fifth-year master’s in teaching program through the UNH Education Department.
Why study secondary theatre education at UNH?
In addition to our award-winning faculty, the UNH Department of Theatre and Dance offers more than 25 performance opportunities every year in musicals, plays or dance concerts, including student productions. You’ll be able to pursue independent studies and you’ll be eligible to apply for R.E.A.C.H., financial assistance provided to students who participate in internships with professional theatre or dance organizations. Our Cultural Stages program brings acclaimed playwrights, choreographers and other theatre artists from around the world to campus. With the addition of the fifth-year Master of Arts in Teaching program, you’ll be able to achieve your New Hampshire teaching certificate.
