About Shepherd University

Welcome to Shepherd University’s Contemporary Theatre Studies (CTS) Program, the only contemporary theatre studies degree in the country offered by a public university. Our major is focused on the art of theatremaking in an ever-changing field, and prepares students for success by promoting a content-rich curriculum steeped in practical application, experience, and exposure.

Shepherd University offers an exciting variety of theater opportunities, including intensive classroom study, theory and practical application, and experience in theater productions both on and off the stage. Shepherd leverages its partnership with the Contemporary American Theater Festival to provide a unique theatrical education geared toward training the next generation of American theater artists. We are proud to promote anti-racist, pro-feminist, queer-affirming coursework and productions, and welcome all those who are dedicated to the creation and promotion of American Theatre to train with us.
