Part of the interdisciplinary arts curriculum at Eugene Lang College, the Theater program provides students with a grounding in theater practice through traditional approaches as well as new media, a range of global perspectives, and an emphasis on civic engagement. This liberal arts curriculum combines performance opportunities along with seminars in theater history and theory. The Lang Theater program carries forward The New School’s tradition of progressive education through its emphasis on experimental and socially oriented practice.
Minors are available to undergraduate students across The New School. Note: Students majoring in The Arts (BA, The Arts) can enroll in any minor of their choice, including an Arts minor in a discipline different from the one already being studied in their major.
