The Concentration

The Department offers a concentration in Theatre Arts and Performance Studies. Concentrators chose one of the following "tracks" to study within the concentration:

  • Theatre Arts
  • Performance Studies
  • Dance

Each track has a requirement of ten (10) courses to fulfill the concentration and culminates with the capstone project in the senior year.

If your interest lies in acting and directing - consider the Theatre Arts track.

For the broad spectrum of  live art, including design, production, dramaturgy and writing for performance - consider the Performance Studies track.

For dance or performance-based live art, including design and production, consider the Dance track. 

As a student, you can be involved in the Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies whether you become a concentrator or simply take a single course. Please see our Undergraduate Handbook (linked below) for more detailed information.
