Theatre Arts Department

Theatre Arts Department Overview

Hartwick’s Theatre Arts Department is small enough for you to do big things. A dynamic, student-centered program, theatre arts immediately engages you in all aspects of theatre creation– actor, director, playwright, designer, electrician, stage manager, dramaturg, crew– at Hartwick you learn to do it all. Small class size and student-faculty collaborations provide students the knowledge and experience needed to create theatre or pursue related professional endeavors. Hartwick theatre arts students are versatile, creative communicators, problem-solvers, critical thinkers, and passionate theatre artisans.

Please note: Hartwick College focuses on offering fall, January, and spring term undergraduate courses in person, however circumstances may require us to offer a small number of courses in this department through distance education. In times of emergency, following regulatory guidelines, all classes may temporarily need to be delivered through distance education, including online. We also offer a slate of courses online in the summer to help our students make progress towards their degrees. With support from an academic advisor, students needing particular courses may have other online options as well. If you have questions about the way courses are delivered in your program, please contact your Department or Program Chair.
