About Rowan University

At the undergraduate level, the Department of Theatre & Dance offers a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Theatre and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Dance. The theatre degree features four designated concentrations for in-depth coursework in: Acting, Musical Theatre, Design/Technical and Pre-Teaching. The four concentrations share a core curriculum of theatre arts courses while allowing students to extend study in their specific field of interest. Undergraduate students from other majors may also share in our interdisciplinary activities by auditioning for a minor in theatre or dance.

Two programs are offered at the graduate level: The Master of Science in Teaching (MST) in Theatre offers teaching certification through a BA/MST program, consisting of the Pre-Teaching Concentration in the BA program and the MST Theatre Education program through the College of Education. The Master of Arts (MA) in Theatre: Arts Administration is an online Masters program offered through Rowan University Global Learning & Partnerships.

Rowan is a cutting-edge Performing Arts Program in the Northeast, strategically located 20 miles outside of Philadelphia and 90 miles from New York City. Our unique program differentiates our graduates from other artists in their field by emphasizing the integrated study of Theatre and Dance where we develop highly skilled and well-rounded performers, designers, and technicians who make creative, vibrant, and connected physical choices on stage and in the classroom.

Our NAST (National Association of Schools of Theatre) accredited-program trains students in a common core of production classes intensified by four focused Theater concentrations: Acting, Musical Theatre, Design/Tech, and Pre-Teaching as well as a BA in Dance. During out students' training at Rowan University, we aim to build highly individualized and collaborative performance ensemble. This approach allows for close faculty-to-student mentorship, abundant Mainstage and student-directed performances, and ample design opportunities.
