The School of Drama is a conservatory training course within a university setting. We offer students a four-year, sequence-based program leading to a B.F.A. in Drama. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for immediate entry into the professional workforce.

Students elect to take a number of cross-option classes within the School of Drama and periodic electives within the university. Classes are small, and an emphasis is placed on highly-individualized, personal attention, as well as developing a sense of collaboration. The faculty consists of working theater professionals committed to teaching and instilling the highest standards of discipline, quality and professional ethics.

For students interested in a rewarding career as an arts/entertainment professional, the school offers five degree programs at the undergraduate level. For graduate students interested in a higher level of education, the school also offers five degree programs:
