With five undergraduate programs and several graduate programs, the Penn State School of Theatre is the perfect place to train and grow as an individual artist.

We're a small school situated within a large university, which means you'll know everyone in the School of Theatre by name. You'll have the opportunity to be a part of everything else Penn State has to offer including over 1000 different clubs and organizations, hundreds of events and happenings including the Dance Marathon (THON - the world's largest student-run philanthropy), and live performances of all kinds!

We're thrilled that you're interested in sharing your talent with us and we're just as excited to get to know you! You can learn more about us on our website and you can apply to Penn State through the Common App, Coalition App, or on our own Admissions website here.
