The Department of Theatre has a strong faculty who are committed to professional training coupled with the academic study of theatre. Along with our full-time professors, we partner with many professional theatres in the city and hire working actors, directors and technical theatre designers and technicians to teach and/or direct shows. Our unique partnership with Kansas City’s Theatre for Young America allows our students to get professional stage time and design/technical experience before they graduate.
“What do we have to offer? The Department of Theatre provides students with a personal and participatory learning environment. We are not just talk — our integrative learning style is active, allowing students to directly apply knowledge they learn in the classroom to real world applications. Come be a part of our University and experience the best of an undergraduate academic and professional education.”
