Students in the Theater and Filmmaking program of Rutgers University can explore their craft by choosing concentrations in Acting, Musical Theater, Design and Technology, or Filmmaking, all within a dynamic liberal arts curriculum that provides them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.


Student-proposed majors in other areas of theater such as directing or playwriting can be created in consultation with faculty.

As part of a strong, interdisciplinary Department of Fine Arts, our students also benefit from exposure to visual art, music, and new digital media perspectives. Our proximity to the vibrant Philadelphia and New York theater scenes makes internships highly accessible.


Students are afforded the opportunity to learn and work in two exceptional performance venues. The Walter K. Gordon Theater, a state-of-the-art 650 seat proscenium house, is renowned for its near-perfect acoustical properties and gives our students the experience of performing in a large-scale theater or concert hall. The Black Box Studio provides students with a more intimate side of the performing spectrum with multiple configurations.


Each year, the Theater and Filmmaking program of Rutgers University presents a full season of plays that creates learning opportunities in every area of production from design work and stage management to acting and directing. Groundbreaking, fully supported productions range from Shakespearian tragedies to modern classics and musicals. Student-created work is highly encouraged and showcased annually in the Student-Directed One Act Play Festival.
