The areas of study include lighting design, sound design, technical direction, set design/construction, costume design, wig & makeup design, stage properties, and stage management. Concepts and aesthetics are taught using contemporary teaching methods that utilize state-of-the-art equipment. Professionally produced events in our Reece Theatre, Wilson Studio Theatre, and at the Cobb Civic Center’s Anderson Theatre provide our students with practical hands-on work experiences.
