We create opportunities that allow students to reach beyond the college campus, extending regionally, nationally, and internationally. We strive to design and maintain a program that gives students the opportunity to fully explore their potential as creative, productive, articulate, and humane contributors to society.

Department History

The Theatre major at Fort Lewis College began as an option of the English major in the 1960’s. In 1994, the Theatre major was approved by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education and the Colorado State Board of Governors. We currently offer programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre with options in General Theatre Studies, Performance and Directing, Design and Technical, and Arts Administration. We also offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities with a concentration in Theatre and a minor in Theatre. There are currently about 40 student majors actively pursuing a degree in Theatre at Fort Lewis College.
