Kalamazoo College

Welcome, Prospective and New Students

Choosing a college and choosing a major are big decisions. You're charting your course for the next four years and this has significant implications for your life beyond that time. Kalamazoo College is known for its emphasis on blending academics with real life experience so that when you graduate, you are confident that you're prepared for whatever might come next. The Department of Theatre Arts is an excellent example of this practice.

While the Department of Theatre Arts hosts the academic side of theatre--courses, internships, foreign study, Senior Individualized Projects--Festival Playhouse is the company whose members (students, faculty, guest artists) produce plays on campus. We have some wonderful theatres which are amazingly versatile, fostering highly creative work.

Students at K do not necessarily have to major or even minor to be involved--everyone is welcome. We do, however, have many double majors in areas that may surprise you. Recently students have combined their studies in Theatre Arts with a wide variety of other departments including Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Neuroscience, Economics and Business, Philosophy, Art and Art History, Music, Chinese, French, German, and of course, English.

Check out what our current students are doing to get a glimpse of what's happening right now and what they are auditioning for at K. Then take a look at our alumni page to see where some of our students have gone after graduation. (You might have even know some of their names!)

We're glad you are considering a future at Kalamazoo College. Please let us know if you'd like to schedule a visit; we'd be happy to meet you, hear about what you are interested in doing, and how we can support you. Just give us a call at 269.337.7130 or email the Office Coordinator at
