The Department of Theater Arts is the newest department at Monmouth College, but has a long tradition here. Formerly, housed in the Department of Speech and later in the Department of Communication, now, with a new Theatre Major in the curriculum, the Department is blossoming into an exciting new entity. The Theater Arts Learning Outcomes statement describes the knowledge and skills students majoring in Theatre develop by the time they complete our program.  Take a look at our more detailed description of our educational program.

Internships are an integral part of the Theatre major. All majors are required to complete an internship experience or an independent study project.  The internship experience usually occurs in the junior or senior year or in the summer between.  Theatre faculty routinely advise and assist students in finding good internships.  An internship is normally for three semester hours of credit. Typically students to spend between 125 and 150 hours at the internship site or about eight to ten hours per week.  More details are found on our Internship Page.

The Department has excellent facilities supporting our programs.

For further information regarding internships activities or other aspects of the program, contact Dr. William Wallace, Chair.
