The National Award Winning NCCU Department of Theatre has been unique over the years because of the program's capacity to transform a creative notion about the theatre into practical knowledge and skills. North Carolina Central University's Department of Theatre is designed to satisfy the needs of a broad range of enthusiastic students; to give them the widest possible exposure to man's accomplishments in theatre and to experiences that will develop them as capable theatre practitioners. The most unique aspect of NCCU's Theatre program is the opportunity to choose from seven different theatre concentrations: Theatre Education, Technical Theatre, General Theatre, Performance, Theatre Administration, Theatre Communications, Dance Performance and Dance Teacher Education. The Theatre faculty designed the concentrations because of a growing concern for the future of our majors. Through our practical concentrations, the students are being prepared to become theatre teachers, designers and technicians, theatre arts managers, and to work in media.
