College announces new interdisciplinary major for Fall 2019

Starting in Fall 2019, Lees-McRae will begin offering a new major—Theatre Arts Administration. 

The hybrid program, a joint-effort between the college’s School of Arts, Humanities, and Education and the School of Business and Management, will prepare students who have an interest in the arts and business for a career in arts administration.

“Theatre is a business,” Assistant Dean of Arts, Humanities, and Education and Director of Theatre Arts Danielle Curtis said. “Our Theatre Arts Administration degree bridges the gap between the art of theatre and the science of business.”

The program includes classes such as theatre marketing and management, community and outreach, management and leadership, business communications, among many others. Students will also have the chance to train during the Lees-McRae Summer Theatre productions and become involved in student-led projects on campus and in the community.

Popular minors students may consider include technical theatre, marketing, or English.
