The Department of Theatre and Dance is a community of students, scholars, artists and artisans who regard the collaborative and creative process as the core of education. We engage with that process at all levels of our work as we pursue excellence and understanding.

At the graduate level, we offer a Master of Fine Arts in dance and a Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy in theatre and performance studies. In conjunction with the Leeds School of Business, we also offer students an MA/MBA through a dual degree program. Each faculty member in the department has professional experience in the performing arts and is committed to guiding students in the creation, performance and analysis of theatre arts.
