Students focus on theatre as a cultural, educational, and humanitarian art form, and are trained to use and demonstrate high impact practices in their respective classrooms. Through immersion in creative and collaborative theatre/drama processes, students build professional capacity through arts-infused curricula. UWM’s Department of Theatre supports schools and cultural institutions in both the urban classroom setting, and beyond, by encouraging accessible creative arts education for all students.
