The course of study in the Department of Theater is grounded in the belief that the performing arts draw on a unique combination of intellectual and artistic skills and talents, which are most fully developed when theory and practice are integrated into the learning experience. Students in the program gain expertise in all the fundamental areas of theatrical art in graduated sequences of study designed to bring into focus rigorous critical thinking, precise methods of research, and imaginative expression.
Notable Alumni Include: Bill Pullman, Jeffrey Donovan, Richard Gere, Marissa Matrone, Rob Corddry, John Dias, Constance Congdon, David Mark Cohen
