Theatre Major: Youth Drama Option B.A.
What is the youth drama option in theatre?
If you love the dramatic arts and see the possibilities for connecting with young children through creative programming, the youth drama option is for you. This theatre degree program will give you tools to work with children in settings inside and outside the classroom. Whether you’re interested in elementary school teaching or working as an artist, you’ll learn advanced skills in storytelling and theatre, and you will have the opportunity to work with our Master Puppeteer. This program will give you hands-on teaching experience and the option to pursue a fifth-year master’s degree in teaching through the UNH Education Department.
