Theatre Arts and Performance Studies offer a major and minor, as well as core curriculum courses. Our program frames theatre within the liberal arts environment as a holistic educational experience through integrated practical and theoretical study. We offer broad-based theatre training in the following areas: performance, scenography, theatrical production as well as performance studies. In order to facilitate an understanding of the wider applications of theatre practice beyond the theatre proper, we encourage students to explore the relationship of performance to social and cultural practices both viscerally and intellectually. Additionally, we give students the tools and methodologies to investigate a range of theatre and performance practices in a variety of national, international, historical and contemporary contexts. In addition to our professionally active faculty we engage renowned theatre practitioners who mentor our students by serving as directors or designers in season productions, guest speakers or special topic workshop leaders throughout the academic year. Through their course of study at USD, a theatre arts student has the opportunity to cultivate translatable skills that will empower them to think critically, engage creatively, and collaborate effectively enhancing their life options and diversified employability.
