The Theatre program at the University of Dubuque offers an in-depth study of drama as an art form and professional practice. You will leave ready to build a career in performance, playwriting, technical direction, arts administration, and more.
Making a Difference Through the Study of Theatre
Students at UD explore drama from several analytical and methodological frameworks including technical, creative, historical, cultural, and aesthetic. Students put their learning into action through the regular performance of plays, musicals, improv shows, podcasts, and other collaborative productions.
Students who major in theatre learn through a rigorous balance of studio curriculum, performance work, and academic study. For non-majors, theatre study is a means to hone broader skills such as public speaking, analytical thinking, and creative collaboration.
A degree in theatre can provide entry into various careers, including teaching drama in an educational setting, arts administration or management, and performance through acting, directing, scene or lighting design, and drama or expressive therapies.
The theatre program presents two full-mounted theatre productions each year. Productions and ensembles are open to all UD students, regardless of major. Academic credit is available for participation in performance ensembles.
