Studying technology and design in the theatre and dance department is based on practicum based learning.  The laboratory environment offers hands-on experience that builds and tests creative problem solving skills. Researching, drawing, designing and building are just some of the areas that draw students to this area.  

Each production season offers many student design opportunities in the areas of costume, scenery, properties, lighting, video and sound for Theatre & Dance.
