Augsburg we seek to create every opportunity for students to grow both as theater artists and scholars by encouraging connections between our campus and the greater arts community, while also exploring connections between theory and application. 

Students in the Theater program at Augsburg University have the opportunity to make these connections through course study, theatrical production work, participation in the Artist Series (an annual series of events featuring visiting theater professionals from the Twin Cities community who work closely with students), and attendance at numerous professional productions in the Twin Cities. Augsburg theater productions are treated as unique learning laboratories where students can enter into creative collaboration with faculty and professional artists-in-residence.
