Today I came across an inspiring post about the benefits of majoring in theatre, regardless of whether or not you end up working in the theatre. The Arts Room thanks Tom Vander Well for putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard I guess I should say, and sharing his thoughts with the world:

I have a confession to make. I was a theatre major in college (yes, complete with the snooty but appropriate ”re” spelling). I’ll wait for you to stop snickering. Judson University (it was Judson College when I attended), the small liberal arts college outside of Chicago labeled the major course of studies as “Communication Arts” which is what I tend to put on resumes and bios because I realize that “theatre major” tends to elicit thoughts such as “Do you want fries with that?”
and thanks, CB, for sharing!
