Theatre & Communication Arts
Our curtain rises to welcome you to the Department of Theatre and Communication Arts at Whittier College. Located 23 miles from the heart of downtown Los Angeles’ arts district, the Theatre Department strives to provide a balanced preparatory foundation, exposing students to multiple approaches and applications of theatre – all of which is firmly based in the liberal arts tradition.
Students majoring within the department follow a program of study designed to stimulate awareness of our cultural traditions and to explore the creative abilities of each individual. We provide courses in the areas of performance, directing, theatre history and dramatic literature, and stage design and technology. We also offer classes in speech communication, film history and criticism, and video production.
