“Theatre demands different muscles.”
― Victor Garber
Collaborative, interdisciplinary, and ephemeral by definition, theatre 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 on individual student mentorship, as well as the artistic merit of UMD Theatre productions. Offering both the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree programs, the Department helps students choose a path that best suits their individual aspirations and talents. Students in both programs are supported by rich and varied production opportunities, preparing them for careers in the performing arts and a wide range of related professions.
