The Department of Theatre Arts at the University of Oregon is committed to a liberal arts approach to theatre education, maintaining high standards both in academic and creative practices.

We pursue study of theatre’s histories and literature as cultural formations that can inform or reform artistic practice as cultural intervention, and we maintain active commitment to investigating how such formations and interventions can illuminate potential pathways to personal growth.

Our faculty maintain a long-standing tradition of commitment to excellence and innovation in our classroom teaching and various mentoring relationships with undergraduate and graduate students.
