Career development is a lifelong process of self-discovery, career exploration, gaining meaningful experiences, intentional reflection, and career decision-making and planning. Utilize CLA Career Services staff and resources to help you navigate your career exploration and post-graduation planning process.

Theatre Arts majors develop great skills that are applicable to a wide variety of careers. These skills include performance and presentation skills, leadership skills, and critical thinking skills, among others.

Experience

For more information on what
you can do with a major in 
Theatre Arts & Dance,
visit CLA Career Services or
explore GoldPASS, the U of M's
exclusive online career database.

Acting majors go on to successful careers in film and theater, the arts, speech and performance work, education, politics, publicity, and much more.

In addition, what you do outside of the classroom can improve your confidence, enhance your skills, and build your resume. Therefore, we encourage you to seek out real-world experience through research opportunities, community engagement, and internships to help you feel confident in your decision upon graduation. Students may also gain valuable and relevant skills by studying abroad or joining a student organization.
