Why Theatre?

DU theatre students build the practical skills and real-world experience needed to make an impression on employers after graduation. Our majors go on to exciting careers in performance, dramaturgy, directing and technical theatre, bolstered by our robust job placement and internship network. Theatre education also develops universal skills like critical thinking, communication, public speaking and team management, all of which help students pursue their ambitions in and beyond the creative arts. Plus, our global alumni community and close connections with the vibrant Denver performing arts scene provide access to a world of opportunities after graduation.

Building Career Foundations

We're dedicated to ensuring that students graduate from our theatre program with the skills, knowledge and connections they'll need to pursue their dreams. Theatre students have gone on to roles in prestigious arts and drama programs around the world, and many explore opportunities outside of theatre in fields like public relations, arts education, project management, communications and non-profit work. With the ongoing support of our career services staff and connections with faculty and alumni that will last a lifetime, theatre students emerge from their time on campus ready to pursue their goals.
