Theatre & Film
In the Department of Theatre & Film, our majors are actively involved in all aspects of production and performance – a key facet in future success. With numerous high-profile campus and community performance opportunities each year, students are in the spotlight the moment they walk in our door.
Comprised of two distinct disciplines and housed in the renowned Wolfe Center for the Arts, we foster the development of the scholar-artist-citizen, through both practical and inquiry-based learning.
