Theatre Management

In the Theatre Management program, you’ll be exposed to both the art and business aspects of theatre, preparing you for a career in arts administration and management.

The program combines theatre courses with management and marketing courses. Participate in The Theatre’s School’s public productions, taking on various management positions, and complete multiple professional internships to gain real-world experience in the theatre management industry.

You’ll also have the option to participate in New York City Intensive — a one-week independent study in New York City, where you will meet with producers, company managers, active DePaul alumni in the industry and tour theatres and museums.
