Special Opportunities

Whether your focus is on theatre arts, corporate communication, or broadcasting, you’ll need to practice what you’re learning—while you’re learning. At Elmhurst, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for hands-on experience: on stage, on the air, or on the job. For example:

  • Our campus radio station provides on-air opportunities as well as production experience. WRSE-FM is a 320-watt station with a sophisticated array of equipment.
  • Elmhurst’s own Mill Theatre provides on-campus opportunities to act, work on sets and lights, and even design and direct plays. As a theatre major at Elmhurst, you can get involved in Elmhurst College Theatre productions as early as freshman year.
  • World-class internships are available in the immediate area and in downtown Chicago, just 16 miles away.
  • Departmental practica provide practical experience and insight into radio or theatre.
  • National organizations, such as the Theta Alpha Phi National Theatre Honorary and Lambda Pi Eta, give you a look at the professional world.
