The theatre department teaches basic and advanced courses in theatre arts, technology and appreciation.

The department recognizes the importance of the role of the fine arts within the humanities program of a liberal arts education. Courses in theatre help develop a student’s sense of self worth while encouraging independent, original and creative thinking.

Classes and productions are open to theatre majors and minors and students in other fields. These experiences provide unique opportunities for creative expression and development when coupled with other programs.

Note: Production participation requirement—Theatre, being a collaborative art, is dependent on the participation of people in all aspects of theatrical production: acting, designing, crew work, box-office, publicity, directing, etc. For this reason, students majoring or minoring in theatre are expected to participate actively and continuously in the production activities of the theatre department throughout their academic career at UAF. Theatre majors are required to take three credits of theatre practicum and are encouraged to take it for elective credits as well. Theatre majors and minors are expected to attend all theatre department "Town Meetings” and to talk regularly with a theatre department faculty member (an advisor) regarding their participation so that they may plan a working course of action to fulfill this requirement.
