Overview

The liberal arts focus of the Theatre program at the University of Kentucky is coupled with ongoing career counseling to ensure successful transition from campus to professional life. 

Students are encouraged to find their passion and pursue it – many students participate in internships and study abroad opportunities as a core component of the undergraduate experience.

Careers

UK Theatre and Dance produces a full mainstage production season annually including dance and musical theatre productions. Additionally, students have the opportunity to direct in the student laboratory season. 

Whether you assist with scenic, light, costume or sound design, or let your talents soar on stage, there is a practicum section that will help you gain the hands-on experience to reach your artistic and professional goals. 

Theatre majors are also encouraged to pursue internships to bridge the divide between academic study and a professional career. The Department of Theatre and Dance regularly hosts renowned guest artists for residencies and master classes.
