Theatre Arts

The Department of Theatre Arts is dedicated to engaging New Paltz students in a dynamic, experiential, and diverse educational experience. The program offers students a unique combination of contemporary theory and practice within the context of a broad-based and humanistic liberal arts tradition. The faculty of teachers, artists, and scholars provides students with models of excellence in our classrooms, on our stages, in major theatre centers in the United States, and in the global performing arts community.

For Theatre majors, we offer a Bachelor of Arts degree grounded in the history, literature, theory, and applied practice of theatre, giving relevance and meaning to a student's artistic endeavors. General education students experience Theatre Arts as a humanistic endeavor within multiple historical and cultural landscapes.
