USC Department of Theatre and Dance

The Department of Theatre and Dance offers undergraduate majors the BA in theatre or dance, and, at the graduate level, the MFA degree in acting, design or directing, as well as MA and MAT degrees.

USC is the only school in South Carolina that offers an MFA in theatre, the highest degree possible in the fields of design and performance.

The Department's theatre production program, known as Theatre South Carolina, is an extension of classroom teaching. Just as important, Theatre South Carolina stages literature that serves the liberal arts mission of USC.
