Performance in all its many forms is embraced and explored in CLU’s 36 diverse majors (and 31 minors). In Theatre Arts, students audition for lead roles in their freshman year. Whether in intimate shows (like April’s Maids of Honor at the 90-seat Little Theatre) or at the Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival (with 15,000 attendees), they work with accomplished faculty and entertainment industry professionals. A different kind of performance—the financial kind—is examined in CLU’s largest major, Business Administration. Here, students gain insight into finance, accounting, marketing, and entrepreneurship, while studying with experienced instructors and interning at nearby corporate powerhouses like J.D. Power and Associates, Amgen, and BMW Group DesignworksUSA.
