Welcome to The University of Texas at Arlington's Theatre Arts Department!

As a student at UTA, you will discover a myriad of opportunities for involvement in every aspect of theatre arts. Students are free to pursue their training and growth as far as their interests, talents and commitment will allow.

Theatre majors at UTA embark each year on a season of artistic development and enrichment. Students are challenged to develop their talent, self-discipline, and initiative through both intellectual and practical pursuits. Theatrical production work goes hand-in-hand with classes designed to immerse students in the theatrical production process as well as dramatic literature, theatre history, and playwriting.

The UTA Department of Theatre Arts is large enough to offer a broadly based and comprehensive curriculum, yet small enough to nurture close-knit relationships between faculty and students. Our location connects students to the vibrant theatre community of Arlington and Dallas/Fort-Worth, affording them unique opportunities for professional employment.

The Department of Theatre Art's goal is to educate and graduate competitive and intelligent artists who will carry on a tradition of quality art. Our continuing vision for the long-term future of our program is twofold: to provide opportunities for our students to participate in top-notch theatrical productions, and to engage our students intellectually in a debate about future directions in the arts.
