Theater Arts at Brandeis University is designed to foster the growth of well-rounded theater artists. 


Through experiential learning, practical training and intellectual inquiry, students at Theater Arts at Brandeis University master skills in writing, design, acting, movement, directing and production.

Study is grounded in theater history, literature, criticism and methodologies from a culturally diverse point of view. Whether creating an original project or working with a classical text, students are given the opportunity to holistically engage in the study and making of theater in a way that illuminates the human condition and celebrates the power of community.

Why Brandeis?

Students study acting, directing, dance and movement, theater literature, and stagecraft and design. Students can develop their own material and perform their own work in campus theaters. Faculty members advise students regularly, and often students are offered internships and paid positions in theaters in Boston, the Berkshires and New York.
