Theater can open you to the human experience in a way that no other art form can. It challenges participants to confront issues and creates a context for discussion.
Theater helps an audience ask "what if?" and leads them to think about how to live before the face of God. Plays can put flesh on our worst side, making us want to repent, and, by God's grace, become better human beings.
Our program integrates the study of theater with the doing of theater. We use a collaborative, problem-solving approach that emphasizes learning to think critically.
Dordt College is among a handful of Christian colleges with a stand-alone theater department. We offer options for those who wish to prepare for a professional career in theater, learn to teach theater skills, or use their experience of this vital art form to develop skills that will lead to a job. Whether you wish to be a theater major or minor - or simply to broaden your liberal arts background - we have something for you.
