Speech and Theatre Education Major

Speech and Theatre Education

Why Minor in Speech and Theatre Education?

The speech and theatre education minor is a fully certified program that permits students to teach grades nine through 12. Students take the same foundation courses as theater majors and participate in Northwest’s freshman/transfer showcase during their first year.

 The freshman/transfer showcase allows all first-year students an opportunity to participate in a mainstage production during their first trimester on campus. First-year students are mentored by faculty and upperclassmen.
