Department of Theatre & Dance

Art for All

Whatever your interests, there is something for you in the Department of Theatre & Dance. Participating in productions and workshops offer hands-on learning experiences in all areas, from performance to production. And opportunities are open to everyone—regardless of age, experience, or major!

In the classroom, courses in dramatic literature & history, acting, directing, dramaturgy, design, stagecraft, choreography, movement, and management provide a broad base of knowledge across the theatre and dance fields. Students who work on a production or take a class through the Department of Theatre & Dance become innovative collaborators and artists eager to foster community through the performing arts. 

Students can get involved with the Department of Theatre & Dance as early as their first semester on campus, so come join the fun!
