When you love the stage, it's where you have to be!
Enrollment Services


Minot State University's theatre program is one of the oldest and most respected in the state. We offer students several ways to pursue their passion, whether it's in the spotlight or behind the scenes.

Degree options

Degree requirements
All theatre students, majors and minors, present a senior recital as part of their required courses.

Do you have what it takes?
Actors must be creative and believable. They must be physically and vocally adept as well as be willing to take risks. Those choosing theatre management over performance must be savvy in theatre, business operations, and marketing.

The stage is the thing

Comedy / Tragedy Freshman Scholarships
Incoming freshmen who have participated in a variety of high school performance activities are encouraged to apply for the Comedy/Tragedy Freshman Scholarship.

Excellence and experience are keys to employment in theatre. Acting is a competitive profession. Work assignments are usually short, ranging from one day to a few months. Actors often hold other jobs to make a living. Careers in technical theatre and design are much more plentiful which is why, at Minot State University, your education requires an equal amount of performance and tech theatre courses and opportunities.

Our faculty
Our faculty members are dedicated educators, active scholars and researchers, and creative visual and performing artists.

Our college
The College of Arts and Sciences provides fundamental liberal arts education for all MSU students, giving students the knowledge, skills and values to help them think critically and creatively.

Please contact us for more information. Better yet, plan a campus visit so we can arrange a tour and meet face-to-face.
