Our students collaborate with faculty to develop and realize their creative potential as artists, scholars, leaders, and global citizens. We practice diversity, equity, and inclusion and support pluralism through theoretical explorations and practical experience in theatre, television, and film. Our pedagogical approach leads students from critical analysis through problem solving into practical action and the realization of art, scholarship, and transformational educational experiences.
