Department of Theatre

The Theatre Department is an undergraduate only program designed to provide the training and experience to help our students grow to the next level. The department is small enough to provide one-on-one work with instructors, but large enough to deliver a wide range of realized production opportunities. Students are encouraged to become involved their first semester on campus and receive a wide-range of opportunities in all areas of Theatre. One of the key features of the Department of Theatre at UWF is the degree to which all the faculty is engaged in professional theatre, opera and dance companies outside the University. This unique level of professional engagement enhances the experience of students by ensuring that their education is pre-professional training.
