A collaborative design

The Theatre and Educational Studies departments have partnered to design a robust theatre education program. Students can expect a broad and thorough training experience through the Theatre Department while learning research-based methods for teaching theatre to PreK through high school students through the Educational Studies Department.

Community connection

Community is an integral part of Monmouth’s teacher preparation. Students’ time in the preparation program involves working closely with area drama or theatre teachers during their practicum work in the classroom. The final year at Monmouth concludes with a semester-long student teaching experience in a drama or theatre classroom.
