The Design and Technology program at the University of Northern Colorado is made up of 9 full and part time faculty and staff consisting of designers and technicians representing all aspects of technical theatre. This group, along with 65-75 Design and Technology majors, produces 10-19 productions in four theatre spaces each academic year. This gives ample opportunities for students and faculty alike to design and work technically on several projects a semester.
The Design and Technology program has a curriculum that combines the best of practical application and applied theory. This new curriculum creates multiple tracks within the program and gives each student the ability to build an education tailored to his or her needs and aspirations. Students have access to a state-of-the-art design lab with 22 stations of equipment and software needed in the design and technology field. Recent changes to the technical equipment in all the theatre spaces have maximized the designing potential for each space.
The College of Performing and Visual Arts is committed to continued development of a Design and Technology program that is an example to other Universities and which trains students to work professionally or to seek advanced graduate education. Upon graduation, 100% of Design and Technology students find professional employment or placement in nationally recognized graduate programs.
The Design and Technology program encourages professional development throughout a student’s education at UNC and supports this through our professional summer stock program, The Little Theatre of the Rockies. Each summer we produce three plays and two musicals with a company made up of professionals and advanced students allowing for a remarkable learning experience.
