About Us


The Department of Theatre consists of artists and scholars who provide academic training, engaged learning, and creative exploration for students who wish to pursue careers in theatre, related fields, or advanced graduate education. We are committed to the highest standards of excellence, embracing equity and diversity, and promoting personal wellness and responsibility.

We offer BFAs in Actor Training, Musical Theatre, Performing Arts Design, Stage Management, Theatre Teaching, and a BA in Theatre Studies. Our programs enable students to develop a comprehensive understanding of the discipline of theatre—its processes, its products, and its unique ability to capture with depth and passion the truths of human experience. Each of our areas of study combines a rigorous, exciting theatre core with specialized courses that provide the freedom and flexibility for each student to meet their personal goals.



The Department of Theatre engages in a continuous process of reviewing, revising, and developing policies and practices that support and advance our vision, including establishing consent-based practices in the classroom and rehearsal hall, developing transparent and equitable work-load policies for faculty, and adopting inclusive season selection and casting practices.
