Two New Majors Offered

Two new majors, theatre and music/business, have been added to Albright College’s curriculum.

Students who major in theatre will study theatre as an art form, literary heritage and cultural touchstone. Integrating the 12-course academic program with the College’s Domino Players Theatre Company will allow students a creative outlet, a preparation for post-graduate work and a foundation for professional and avocational life work.

Tom Brogan, interim vice president of academic affairs and dean, said that this was a good time to establish theatre as a major at Albright. “First, Meridian Theatre (Ed. Now Wachovia Theatre) will be undergoing major renovations. Second, we wanted to develop a major that would integrate performance, as well as literary study. And third, our longtime friend Lynn Morrow, professor of English and director of theatre, will be retiring. Establishing a major in theatre will help us to recruit Lynn’s replacement.”

A new combinable major in music/business is also new at Albright this fall. Designed for students interested in music performance who also have an interest in the music industry, the program will provide an overview of specific music business careers such as songwriting, management and promotion, merchandising, administration, the recording industry, broadcast & film and advertising & retail. Students will combine music/business with another discipline such as English, business or theatre. Brogan said, “This program is for students who are not professional musicians but who are interested in pursuing a career within the music industry.”
