About

As one of the arts and humanities disciplines in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, theatre at GW is vibrantly interdisciplinary, regularly interacting with programs in music, English, fine arts, anthropology and women’s studies.

English, creative writing, music, dramatic literature, film studies, psychology, dance, interior design, and fine arts and art history.

The Thatre program permits an individual student to develop a particular talent, such as acting or design, while working on a creative team. The program’s eclectic offering of productions to the George Washington University community, from the classical to the contemporary to original student work, is a natural extension of work done in the classroom.
