As a drama major at Lynn, you’ll be empowered to design, create and produce your own works as you see fit—all the while using Lynn’s abundant resources to build your personal portfolio.

Take advantage of our newly constructed 750-seat Wold Performing Arts Center and our state-of-the-art television studio, both of which feature the latest in audio, video and computing technology.

From stage performance to behind-the-scenes, your education will span multiple media. You’ll work closely with your peers and professors, learning hands-on with professional-quality equipment in each class you take.

You’ll study studio theater, audio performance, writing, directing and producing.
