Academic Programs - USC Department of Theatre and Dance


The theatre degree programs in the Department of Theatre and Dance offer a vast array of study in performance, design, direction and scholarship, but they all share one important approach -- our students don't just learn, they do.  Whether it's applying acting techniques in scenework or on stage, crafting designs for productions, teaching theatre in public schools or presenting research, our students receive an active education that prepares them for real-world challenges.  Our students also benefit from a faculty comprised of professionals who maintain careers outside of the classroom, as well as an extensive guest artist program which brings in professional directors, designers and actors to work alongside our student artists.
