Welcome to the Department of Theatre

Northeastern offers you an exciting alternative to the traditional choice between a conservatory or liberal arts education. Create a personalized path that combines comprehensive theatre training, innovative electives, diverse performance experiences, and professional development opportunities. We also offer a range of combined majors and minors tailored to your unique ambitions and interests.

As a theatre major in our signature co-op program, you can work for a semester in professional theatre and begin to explore future career paths. Connect your classroom and stage experiences with real-world knowledge in one of the world’s most vibrant theatre cities.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
