Guided by faculty who work as theater artists and scholars, students in the Theater department develop skills in multiple areas and techniques, connect theoretical and historical understanding with artistic expression, and realize their own creative visions in the classroom and on the stage.

Theater students have unparalleled access to world-class theater in the city of Chicago, with courses regularly taking trips to Steppenwolf, the Goodman, and Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, as well as to many other smaller but no less well-respected venues.  On a campus stage or in Chicago, texts and techniques discussed in the classroom come to life for students and faculty.
