The Theatre Education emphasis is designed for students who are interested in a career as an elementary or high school teacher in theatre.

This track prepares students to compete and succeed in the continually evolving world of theatre education, giving students the flexibility and skill set needed to survive and work in public and private education and culminates in state licensure to teach theatre.

Theatre Education emphasis coursework includes a strong cohort of education classes as well as a multi-disciplined cohort of theatre courses with knowledge and training in every aspect of theatre creation.

This curriculum leads to licensure by the Tennessee Department of Education - a requirement for all teachers in the state. License reciprocity is available in 47 other states. Click here for a complete list of states and territories in the United States that offer license reciprocity. 

Theatre Education emphasis majors are eligible to audition for Main Stage productions, direct one-acts and short plays, design, and work with Belmont’s traveling Children’s Theatre Company, The Belmont Repertory Company or RepCo!
