As an FTT student, you have many opportunities to extend your education beyond the classroom. You may audition for the Department’s theatre season or student-driven projects, or participate in performance, production, or networking opportunities offered by other clubs and organizations on campus.
You may screen a film at the Notre Dame Student Film Festival, or serve as a writer, director, or actor in the 48-Hour Film Festival, or work side by side with an award-winning alumni director to make a First Time Fans film.
Under the guidance of an FTT faculty advisor, you may complete a senior thesis, which may range from a critical analysis to an historical study to a creative endeavor like a play or screenplay.
You may undertake an internship (or several) in the media industries or professional theatre, where you enhance your skills and knowledge while gaining valuable work experience and developing your professional network; FTT's internship coordinator can help you get started in your search.
Globally Engaged Citizens
Notre Dame’s Globally Engaged Citizens program rewards the learning and experiences you are already engaging in — and will stand out on your resume and show employers and graduate schools that you’re prepared to be a global citizen.
Students in any college or school can earn the certificate by taking two classes and participating in cultural activities on and off campus. You may already be well on your way to meeting the requirements.
