Why Theatre Arts & Dance?


Our primary mission is to educate our students and our audiences about the performing arts and about the social issues and human emotions the arts speak to so powerfully. We are commited to realizing this mission by creating, producing, and studying works of theatre and dance, and performing them publicly for diverse audiences drawn from both the University and the community at large.

We are a diverse group of artists and scholars with a wide range of talents and interests. Read more about the research and creative work of our faculty as well as the hands-on student employment opportunities.
