The Department of Theatre & Dance

The Theatre program is designed for students who may wish to pursue further studies of theatre at the graduate level or in a conservatory, and for those who wish to use the study of theatre as a nexus for their general education in the liberal arts.

The Theatre Training Program offers a dynamic combination of the practical (performance) and academic (classroom) courses. Many performance experiences are available on and off campus, on stage and on camera, in schools and in the community organizations for actors, singers, directors, stage mangers, writers, teachers, and dramaturges.

Our curriculum is intended for students who wish to pursue a generalized course of study or who wish to focus their higher studies in the areas of Acting, Dramatic Writing, History and Criticism, or Theatre Education. This degree aims to educate creative, resourceful and responsible future artists, teachers, scholars, audience members and advocates for the art of theatre.
