UM Theatre Department Mission Statement
Our mission is to train students to enter the
profession while also providing a first-rate liberal arts education.
Last year, UM was ranked among the top 20 public
master's-level institutions in the South by US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT.
Graduates of the Theatre Department are well-prepared to enter the
entertainment industry in theatre, film or TV and are currently working in
urban markets such as NYC, LA, Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville, Miami, San
Francisco, Orlando and Austin.
While many of our alumni are working professionally
in the industry, your degree from UM also qualifies you to enter a variety
of fields that require critical thinking, leadership and communication
skills. Our graduates have also been successful in pursuing graduate MFA
programs in Theatre and, for those interested, in teaching Theatre at the
high school level in Alabama.
