Theater Minor

The Theater minor at Clearwater Christian College is designed to help students interested in developing their God-given talents for public speaking and performance. This minor complements many programs, including communications, education, and business. A thorough training in theater will give the student a confidence that is necessary for any public speaking-on stage, behind a lectern, or in the classroom. Theater minor students gain hands-on experience through fine arts productions.

Why choose Theater Minor at Clearwater Christian?

  1. Familiarity with the inner-workings of the theater will help students interested in pursuing a career in acting, drama, or stage by providing them with the skills needed for both backstage and on stage work.

  2. Recognizing that story-telling is an exercise that can be used for the furtherance of the Gospel, the study of theater from a Biblical perspective allows students to develop their talents in a Godly environment by focusing on the development of God-given talent and ability.

  3. The study of theater on an undergraduate level will open doors for future study at conservatories and grad schools across the country.

  4. Developing students' natural theatrical ability in a Christian environment will enhance their creative skills, their composition and communication techniques, and their performance confidence through God-honoring methods.

  5. A theater minor is valuable in business, journalism, counseling, and education.
