The School of Music, Dance and Theatre educates and advises students in the literatures, theories, histories and practices of contemporary filmmaking, theatrical performance, dance and related fields. Our teaching, research, creative activity and professional service enrich the cultural life of the University, the community, the state and the region, extending beyond our borders; and move the arts of theatre, dance and film production into the future by building on their diverse histories and cultural contexts.
