The Theater Department is transforming into a larger and more advanced program. Ever since Theater Director Walt Jones came in 2006, the changes have become successful.Â Among the changes, the most important was creating Theater and Dance standalone majors. This makes it easier for potential students to know CSU has what they are looking for. This change was made in hopes that incoming students could better find the specific program they were looking for instead of how it used to be hidden under â€œPerforming Artsâ€. They also hope this will increase the students enrolled in the program, which has already tripled since 2006.
While the process is still underway, many concentrations are being added which strengthens the departments under division courses.Â With all these significant changes taking place CSU students will see how our already successful Theater Department can become even stronger.
