What can you learn with a theatre degree? So much! You’ll gain oral communication, creative problem-solving and leadership skills as well as the ability to work well under pressure in independent and team situations. Those are skills that translate well to just about any profession, including a career in theatre arts. If you want to work behind the scenes in the design or technical side of the field, look to the theatre design/technical minor at Murray State University!
College of Humanities and Fine Arts
Department of global languages and theatre arts
Get involved in theatre on campus! Murray State puts on a number of performances throughout the year, including an event called Campus Lights — the longest running student-produced and student-performed musical series in the South. There's also Sock and Buskin, the oldest student organization on Murray State's campus, which aids and assists in theatre productions in the community.
