Hey Azar,

Usually a theater department will have various types of degrees you can specialize in, all under the "Performing Arts" umbrella. Depending on the school, some will offer directing, screenwriting, acting, production design, wardrobe, etc.

Sure, some school may require you to direct a production as part of a senior thesis or something larger. But I would imagine that's not generally the case. Also, there's thousands of degrees out there, so think about what you want to do in the theater and find the degree that works for you!
