We offer courses in acting (THAR 1130 Acting Fundamentals I), the history, theory, and practice of theatre (THAR 1710 The Theatrical Experience), practicums in acting (THAR 2100), production design (THAR 2300), stage management (THAR 2600), beginning directing (THAR 3210), and movement for the actor (THAR 2160).


We are committed to diversity and equality in theatre education, and seek to enrich the cultural life of our university and community.
