Welcome to the Family.
The Department of Theatre and Dance is a world-class educational environment that serves as the ultimate creative incubator for the next generation of artists, thinkers and leaders in theatre and performance.
With over 50 faculty and more than 150 courses each semester, the department offers unparalleled resources, diverse perspectives and most importantly – a tight-knit, collaborative community in which students thrive.
What I love most is how genuinely nice everyone is and how supportive they are. When I was first making the transition from high school to college, the UT Theatre and Dance family is the reason why it went so smoothly.
