I've never understood why one needs a degree in dancing. You can either dance or you can't and the best way to learn is to just do it. Same with theater - so why do you need a degree?
Cuts to academic programs have been necessary for a long time and elimination of programs like this (which I would equate to a degree in underwater basket weaving) is what our country needs.

People can just do accounting or structural engineering, so why not just let them handle the spreadsheets and the bridge-building whenever they feel like it?
