Students may complete a minor in Theater and may submit an application to major in Theater through the independent major program.
Courses in the arts are designed to prepare students who might wish to pursue advanced training in their fields and are also for those who want to broaden their academic studies with work in the arts that is conducted at a serious and disciplined level. Courses are offered at introductory as well as advanced levels.
The Bryn Mawr and Haverford Theater Program's academic courses and productions provide opportunities to participate in performance and technical aspects of theater, as do Greasepaint Productions and other student-run groups. Goodhart Hall houses McPherson Auditorium and the Hepburn Teaching Theater, the main performance spaces; other facilities at Bryn Mawr and Haverford are available for smaller theatrical productions.
Bryn Mawr College was proud to re-open Goodhart Hall in the Fall of 2009 after an ambitious $19 million dollar renovation project was completed. The newly updated facilities now are used for many functions including the Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series, performances by many student dance and theater clubs, music concerts and social events, as well as providing a home to the Theater Program's main-stage production each semester.
