Welcome to Theater Arts

Welcome to the Theatre Arts Program at Westfield State College. The Program offers a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts, and it is part of the College’s Department of English.

Our web site provides you with a glimpse of the Program and of its faculty, its curriculum, its degree requirements, its facilities, and its past productions. An important feature of the Program is its provision for individual choice and flexibility. In addition to the core curriculum required of all Theatre Arts majors, the Program offers tracks of study that allow students to focus in their area of interest — performance, design/technology, or theatre studies.

The Program is committed to preparing students for work in the professional theatre and for graduate study. Its faculty members are professional artists who bring their knowledge of and experience in the professional theatre into the classroom and the studio to educate and to train theatre artists. An emphasis is placed upon the creative and learning process and upon mentoring students and  providing them with close personal attention.

The Theatre Arts Program plays a vital part in the College community, and it is recognized for the quality of its productions and for the caliber of its students.

We are proud of our close and welcoming community of faculty and young theatre artists, and the contributions our students make to the cultural and intellectual life of the College.
