School of Theatre Arts & Dance

Named a Colorado Program of Excellence by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, the School of Theatre Arts and Dance provides pre-professional training for students who plan to pursue careers in professional theatre, or as teachers of theatre arts. The School actively cultivates an appreciation and understanding of theatre as a part of American society and culture, and as a vehicle for the enrichment of life.

As a student at UNC, you will not only be exposed to rigorous academics in the classroom but also enjoy a wide variety of performance opportunities, get to work along side nationally recognized guest artists, and have the opportunity to explore every facet of the theatrical arts. Combine all of these strengths with our close proximity to Denver and the recreational opportunities afforded by the Rocky Mountains and you truly have something special.
