Theatre Arts and Performance Studies Department Mission
Our program frames theatre as a holistic educational experience through integrated practical and theoretical study. We offer broad-based theatre training in Performance, Scenography, Theatre Production as well as Performance Studies. We encourage students to explore the relationship of performance to social and cultural practices both viscerally and intellectually. Through their course of study at USD, a Theatre Arts and Performance Studies student will learn to think critically, engage creatively, and collaborate effectively. Theatre skills are life skills, leading to enhanced life options and diversified employability.
