All majors are mentored by leading professionals who are also passionate teachers. Theatre Arts majors regularly work alongside faculty, graduate students, teaching artists and professional guests. The Department of Theatre Arts fosters a collaborative, inclusive learning community and excellence in theoretical and practical research and pedagogy through its MFA Performance Pedagogy and PhD Theatre and Performance Studies programs.
