School of Theatre Arts and 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 through an anti-racist lens and is working with Broadway for Racial Justice to ensure that theatre is a vehicle for the enrichment of life studied and viewed via the full spectrum of American society and culture.
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.
The UNC School of Theatre Arts and Dance is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST).
