Theatre Abroad

Imagine practicing Shakespeare in the Globe Theatre in London, strolling along a beautiful Italian street as you make your way to the next theatre venue, or learning a traditional Japanese performance techniques one day, and seeing it performed live the very next day. Study abroad allows you to do all of these things while surrounding yourself with a new and interesting environment, culture, and lifestyle.

Study abroad offers life-changing experiences, and Theatre majors have a wealth of options for their study abroad adventure with programs available from South Africa to Japan. Theatre majors will find themselves with not only a strengthened personal performance derived from studying in a diverse and challenging environment, but also great resume-building experience courtesy of a broadened global perspective.
