Mission Statement

The mission of Winthrop University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is to foster individual students' aesthetic, intellectual, and creative development within the context of a liberal arts education as they pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre or in Dance.  Through class instruction, private coaching, mentoring, and performance, the department advocates both theoretical and creative explorations to achieve an understanding of the social, political, historical, and technological aspects of theatre and dance.  We strive to afford opportunities for students to develop a significant level of competency in one emphasis in theatre (performance, design/technical, K-12 teacher certification) or in dance (performance, K-12 teacher certification).
