The Undergraduate Theatre program embraces theatre as a means to inspire humanity and engage a diverse society. Through the lens of playmaking, we are aligned with the University's liberal arts mission - focusing on the development of empathy, critical analysis, creative problem solving, and changemaking. Through collaborative artistic exploration, the program trains the individual to create within the ensemble.

Special Programs

Students interested in pursuing a Liberal Studies major or an Interdisciplinary Humanities major with a concentration in theatre should plan their program carefully with the advisor in their major and with the Theatre department chair to ensure that graduation requirements are met.
