Established in 1925, we are the second oldest theatre department in the country. Our faculty members are both scholars and artists, teachers and practitioners, constantly moving back and forth between the classroom and the theatre. The Joan H. Gillings Center for Dramatic Art is the crucible where students transform learning into practice every day.
