Mission Statement

The Department of Theatrical Arts at Utah Valley University cultivates student success by challenging our BFA, BA, BS Ed, and AA theatre majors and non-majors to become professionally competent and artistically literate as they complete their academic degrees and courses. To deliver these outcomes, we practice interactive teaching, build critical skills, and create innovative productions that engage campus and off-campus communities.
