Theatre arts students acting in a production

“A liberal education is a freeing education. Its aim is to release the student from the bonds of ignorance, intolerance, parochialism and prejudice. A liberal education seeks to free the student for citizenship in the realm of the intellect.”
— From the department mission statement

As a performer at Marquette, you will have the opportunity to explore the craft of acting from many different perspectives. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to acting, and no two artists approach their work exactly the same. Through a range of curricular opportunities, you will be challenged to grow and develop the techniques that will serve you in school and in your career.

Participation in our varied main stage performances and student-driven productions will put your studies to the test. Guided by faculty as well as regular guest artists as part of our production season, you will build upon your lessons in a safe and professional environment.
