New York Times

Holding a degree in theatre says so much more than "I'm a h artist." Yes, many theatre majors have great hopes of becoming well-known or famous, and, yes, many of them won't. However, all theatre majors and prospective employers deserve to know how beautiful such a degree really is.

1.It shows that you know how to be early.

A degree in theatre tells an employer that you know that being early is on time and on time is late. Punctuality is key.

2. It shows that you know what it means to work with a variety of people.

A degree in theatre proves that whether you loved your scene partner or not, you were able to get through the show.

3. It shows that you have a broad understanding of history.

Theatre explores a wide variety of histories, cultures, and traditions. A degree in theatre shows that you have a good sense of various time periods and the issues associated with them. Likewise, you won't repeat some of history's stupid mistakes.

4. It shows that you have awesome time management skills.

Even though the bags under your eyes don't show it, you know how to fit anything and everything into your schedule. After hundreds of cups of coffee and strong bursts of adrenaline, you will prove how excellent you are and what you can bring to the table.

5. It shows that you know how to effectively read and react to a target audience.

It's not always the easiest, but it's doable.

6. It shows that you know how to work with and/or increase a budget.

Whether it be your small budget to get a costume or the greater budget at large, you know how to get the most and pay the least.

7. It shows that you aren't all about the money.

While the lucrative incomes of famous actors are oftentimes alluring, they are no match for the true passion you have for the arts.

8. It shows that you know how to promote yourself and others.

You will find that one thing about yourself, and you will milk it for every bit there is.

9. It shows that you are an appreciative, hard-worker.

Theatre majors know what it means to be working hard behind the scenes and still enjoy what you are doing.

10. It shows that you have a wide, unique vocabulary.

Hakuna Matata. It means no worries for the rest of your days.

11. It shows that you know how to make a lot out of a little.

When the time comes, you'll find versatility and confidence in everyone and everything to get a job done. You know what it means to delegate and you know what it means to have confidence in that delegation.

12. It shows that you know how tough life really is.

You take rejection with a strong, fearless smile and learn how to develop from your mistakes.

13. Lastly, it shows that you have a sense of what it means to be a part of a larger group, a family.

The hundreds of rehearsal hours, the boat loads of drama, and the many times you're together on and off the stage add to the beauty of the show. It also gives you many, many connections.
