I feel like I am getting a lot out of the theater program at this school because it is so small. The classes usually have a small amount of students compared to other majors, so we get a lot of one-on-one time with the professors.
The tools that I get from pursuing Theatre Performance range from public speaking, which I strengthen from being on stage in front of hundreds of people; managerial skills from my directing course; and writing skills that you can only get from a playwriting class.
