Faith Klick '20, Major in Musical Theatre, Actor and Teaching Artist

Advance in Any Industry

"My BA helped me land jobs in multiple aspects of theatre as an actor, choreographer, director, costumer, and teaching artist because I learned how every aspect of theatre works. More importantly, I learned to work as a team, improvise on my feet, be creative and have great communication skills. I've worked in different fields such as pharmaceuticals and the bridal industry because of those people skills."
