Department of Theatre, Cinema & Dance

Mission Statement

The mission of the Theatre, Cinema and Dance Department is to provide our students with a comprehensive understanding of the theory, practice, literature, history, implementation, and integration of the entertainment and performing arts by challenging them artistically and technically in the classroom, in production, and beyond. We encourage our students to express their individual aesthetics through development of their artistic voices, talents, and skills while becoming active members of the entertainment and performing arts community.
Through training in creative expression and collaboration, our students are positioned to become leaders among their peers in their chosen disciplines, as well as in the community at large. The department is committed to attracting a wide range of students from a variety of backgrounds in order to provide innovative and diverse program opportunities.
