External Programs

The School of Theatre and Dance has connections for internships across the country. However, NIU is within an approximately two-hour physical proximity to three major metropolitan areas that include Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison, where there are highly active and world renowned professional theatre communities. SoTD has a well-established internship program that is both unique and extensive.

In addition to our overseas opportunities, many theatre related workshops and special performances are open to high schools, middle and junior high schools throughout northern Illinois, from Chicago to Moline and from LaSalle/Peru to the Wisconsin state line that are geared to provide advanced instruction in theatre performance and production and to enhance a student’s perception and understanding of a given topic of study.
