Collaborative, interdisciplinary, and ephemeral by definition, theatre is a medium that challenges us to engage with one another and with an ever-changing world.

The Department of Theatre invites students with a passion for the performing arts to join its academically and artistically rigorous program. We pride ourselves as much on individual mentorship of our student artists as on the artistic merit of our productions. Offering degree programs for both the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), the department enables students to choose the path that best suits their individual aspirations and talents. Students in both programs are supported by rich and varied production opportunities that will prepare them for careers in the performing arts and a wide range of related professions.
