There is a world of possibilities open to students with a Theatre for Social Justice degree, both in arts and non-arts related fields. What all graduates share is a passion for the arts and a desire to make an impact for good in society.
The Theatre for Social Justice major trains students to take theatre and the fine arts beyond the stage and into the local community to address issues of injustice. Students work on three productions a year, both onstage as performers and backstage as crew members, in Cove Auditorium. They also create original theatre works, combining creative writing, music, dance, and storytelling, and activate their art and faith through social justice theatre techniques based in Augusto Boal, playback theatre, and story circle. Students with a Theatre for Social Justice degree are prepared to go into any field and offer their unique skills as an arts advocate or pursue a career in the professional theatre, both on and off stage.
Eastern Nazarene College is the only Christian college to offer a major that teaches students to activate their faith by going into communities, hearing their stories, and helping them communicate through the arts -truly engaging with those who need a voice in society. This major also teaches acting, directing, and technical theatre skills, providing students with many opportunities to put their training into practice in live productions over the course of their four years. The Theater for Social Justice major is perfect for students who are passionate about the arts and interested in a career in either an arts or non-arts field. Theatre for Social Justice majors are required to choose a second major so they will be prepared to take either path upon graduation from the program.
