About the Theater Degree
Develop your talents with top professors in Cal U's comprehensive theater program.
California University of Pennsylvania prides itself on the long tradition of its theater program, where undergraduate students are paired with top scholar-artisans who have devoted their lives to performance and theater. Our theater degree is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre and is designed to give you a balanced mix of pre-professional training, performance and a classic liberal arts education.
Cal U has the distinction of being an Educational Affiliate with Estill Voice International. Our performance curriculum includes Estill Voice Training, which is studied by professional performers, including many Broadway and recording artists. EVT encourages those who seek vocal versatility to explore the full range of expression in the human voice, but not at the expense of vocal well-being. Today's professional theater can be quite vocally rigorous and requires artists with tremendous versatility and good vocal health. As a student of theater or musical theater at Cal U, you'll learn through Estill the tools for a sustained career as a performing artist.
