Entertainment Production at Husson University

Entertainment Production

“My favorite thing about NESCom is having the opportunity to put the concepts I have learned in class to use during events hosted at the Gracie Theatre. It is a practical way to earn experience that I know will give me an edge when it comes time to apply for a job in my field.”

— Nichole Sparlin
Student, Entertainment Production

The Entertainment Production degree program is designed to educate students for career opportunities that exist in the many fields of the entertainment industry. The curriculum focuses on professional design, technology and management skills that are needed "behind the scenes", rather than on performance.Entertainment Production

Core disciplines associated with theatre and the performing arts are employed by many other communications industries throughout the world. As an example, design and construction techniques used in theatre are employed in everything from trade shows to shopping malls, fashion shows, exhibits and even political rallies.

A variety of entertainment venues require professionals who can design and operate today's entertainment technologies, as well as manage events and performance facilities. Entertainment Production is a hands-on, industry-wide training program for this exciting and creative field.
