Welcome to the UAH Theatre Program

Merge your academic interests and your artistic passions with a degree in theatre from UAH! We have three areas of specialization: Performance, Technical, and Dramaturgy. Each is designed to prepare you for a smooth transition into the world of professional theatre – something our successful, active theatre alumni can attest to!

Whether you choose to focus solely on theatre or combine it with a second major, you'll enjoy all the benefits that our dynamic Theatre Program has to offer, including:

  • Personalized attention, thanks to our low student-to-faculty ratio and our entrepreneurial, progressive environment
  • Hands-on learning, whether it's performing in a mainstage production or interning with a professional theatre company
  • Networking opportunities, as a result of the strong relationships UAH Theatre has with community and regional partners
  • Extracurricular activities, like attending local and regional theatre festivals

But most important of all, your theatre degree will help you master the skills that all industries, including the entertainment industry, value most – from public speaking and problem solving to creative thinking and collaboration. The end result is a diverse, well-rounded educational foundation that will give you a competitive edge no matter where your future takes you.

"...UAH is a great place to get a theatre degree because the one-on-one interaction that I was able to have with my teachers was unlike anything I know I would have been able to experience anywhere else. And it’s a family. We really became a family"
