Interdisciplinary Studies Major

Addison Cook wanted to combine her love of theater with her desire to provide excellent service and management backstage. After researching similar programs, Cook presented her four year plan for a Theatrical Stage Management degree to the academic board. She will be taking classes in theater, management, psychology and Shakespearean Drama. “Theater is not typically known as a godly atmosphere, but my love of people is only surpassed by my love of the Lord and I am confident that theater is my mission field. JBU has helped me look at my career choice with an eternal perspective, not just an earthly one.”
