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.
