The University of San Diego Department of Theatre

The Department of Theatre at USD offers both a Major and Minor in Theatre, as well as core curriculum courses. Our program frames theatre within the liberal arts environment as a holistic educational experience, through integrated practical and theoretical study. We offer broad-based theatre training and learning in the following areas: Design, Playwriting, Performance, and Theatrical Production.

We encourage students to explore the relationship of performance to social and cultural practices, both viscerally and intellectually. Seizing the opportunity to explore interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary collaborations – with other departments, colleges, schools, centers and institutes in the USD community – is a hallmark of our pedagogical approach.

In addition to our professionally active faculty, we engage renowned theatre practitioners who mentor our students by serving as directors, designers, guest speakers, and/or special topic workshop leaders, throughout the academic year. Through a typical course of study at USD, a Theatre student will cultivate a broad range of skills – which empower and inspire critical thinking, creative engagement, effective communication, and generous collaboration – enhancing life options and diversifying employability.
