The CMC theatre degree program includes a strong emphasis upon theatre appreciation. Because the theatre has long held a central cultural position in societies past and present, the study of theatre is truly a study of many things, including history, philosophy, psychology, religion, politics and more. Playwrights reflect, analyze and challenge issues and themes of their times. Theatre offers a unique insight into how societies view themselves and matters of great importance.
