Theatre Studies

The Theatre Studies program at UNC is built for theatre creators and innovators: leaders of the field, playwrights, directors, entrepreneurs, multi-dimensional artists, managers, producers and administrators.

Theatre Studies is designed to provide you with a solid education that encompasses all aspects of creating theatre while allowing you to pursue your specific interests, including classes and activities outside the School of Theatre Arts and Dance. As a Theatre Studies major, you will work directly with our faculty to craft the theatrical education that will best serve you in your growth as an artist and a professional.

Admission

Admission to the Theatre Studies program requires additional steps beyond the UNC application. This includes submission of a Theatre Studies application and successful completion of an interview.
