Visiting our campus is one of the best ways to get a feel for Goshen — from classes and dorms to the dining hall menu — and decide if it’s a good fit for you. We are a friendly community where people are happy to answer your questions and show you around.
Would you like to manage a stage, design a set or make your debut as an actor? As a theater major at Goshen College, you’ll earn your fair share of time in the spotlight and backstage. You’ll participate in full-length mainstage shows, one act plays and musical theater performances—all hands-on opportunities to apply technical and artistic skills learned during class. And by the time you graduate, you’ll have created your own senior show!
As a theater major, you’ll explore acting, design, literature, playwriting, voice and movement, in addition to studying the history and philosophy of theater. GC’s theater program emphasizes the liberal arts, so you can augment your thespian knowledge with courses in art, music, communication, English and foreign languages. After college, you can expect to do what GC alumni are doing now—working coast to coast in theaters, touring companies, education and video/film production.
