What will I learn?

The School of Theatre and Dance is rooted in the belief that the relevant artist is the thinking artist who couples the mastery and embodiment of concrete skills with knowledge of and sensitivity to the cultural environments of ideas, artistic forms, and other persons.

Theatre students are exposed to all aspects of performance and production, as well as the academic study of theatre history, dramatic literature and criticism. Our students act the parts, construct the sets and costumes, and are responsible for running the productions.

To realize this mission, the School of Theatre and Dance strives to:

Develop in students the ability to work productively and sensitively in creative and collaborative processes.

Offer multiple opportunities for students to self-initiate and self-produce work in a context supportive of experimentation.

Produce performances and creative experiences of high quality.

Present performances by and learning experiences with visiting artists.

Motivate students to take active responsibility for their work processes and careers.

Promote, support, and enable faculty professional development so that teachers continue to provide the education for students that only growing, current, and active creative artists and scholars can provide.

Inspire and prepare students to be advocates for the arts.

Foster an understanding of the roles of the artist and the arts in society.

Advance dynamic partnerships with diverse communities.
