About Theatre, Dance and Performance Studies

TDPS conceives of performance expansively, valuing broad connections over narrow specialization. We train students to engage with multiple forms of performance in traditional theatrical contexts, as well as broader ways of thinking and being in society. TDPS students learn to communicate effectively in speech, writing, and embodied practice, to collaborate effectively with others, and to apply their skills in critical analysis to both the production and the consumption of the performances that surround us. The program is broadly interdisciplinary, involving faculty with many different areas of expertise, from dance practice to philosophies of embodiment and from contemporary and experimental theatrical performance to histories of performance and theatrical practice. TDPS prepares students for collaborative endeavors in many fields after graduation, including but not limited to careers in the performing arts and arts-adjacent professions.
