Whether your interest is in acting, directing, design, or theory the Theatre Arts program can heighten your view of theater as a performing art and its place in society and culture. Our seasoned and nationally recognized instructors bring their passion to the classroom, stage, and design studios to shape and inspire the actors, directors and designers of tomorrow. UALR undergraduates excel because of the purposely low student faculty ratio which allows for hands on training and high level production experience in all areas of theater. The presence in our department of the state’s premiere Dance BFA program offers students additional real world experience as performers, designers, and stage managers in a related art form. The broad focus of the BA program provides an excellent foundation for developing leadership skills, the ability to collaborate, and increased strength in critical and analytical thinking for students pursuing a career in theater or any other career option. At UALR Department of Theater Arts and Dance, we shape your dreams into reality.
