Department of Theatre and Dance

Student-centered learning is a hallmark of the College of Charleston and especially in the Department of Theatre and Dance. Our students aren't just numbers - but close partners in an artistic community formed and shaped in the classroom, in the studio and in our productions. They study with passionate and dedicated faculty members in small classroom settings and through the course of creating our varied production seasons. The program's intimacy and abundant opportunities allow students to gain valuable experience in all aspects of theatre and dance production and study. Learn more | Watch videos
