Why choose English with a Theater specialization?
Theater brings stories to life, activating scenes otherwise left to our imaginations. In Saint Leo’s Theater program—a specialization of our English degree—you’ll learn about all aspects of theater, from playwriting to stage performance to technical production.
Dare to become an extraordinary thinker, writer and artist. Explore the cultural contexts of drama, and learn to adapt stories for both the stage and mass media, whether as a playwright, dramaturge, artistic or executive director, stage manager, designer, critic, performer or administrator.
Wow audiences in campus productions. Perform in musical revues and community concerts with University Concert Band, Drama Ministry and Voices of Christ. Host a show on SLU Radio.
B.A. English concentrations are also available in Advanced Literary Study and Professional Writing. If you aim to teach English at the secondary level, combine your English degree with an Education minor in place of a concentration.
