Department of Theatre and Film

About Us

The University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film offers undergraduate degrees (Bachelor of Arts and minors) in theatre and film. The University of Toledo is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST), the primary accrediting body for programs in Theatre and Film. As an undergraduate liberal arts department, we actively engage students in creative practice, critical thinking and cross cultural/global exchange through the study and practice of live productions and cinema. We empower students to be thoughtful and productive scholars, artists, professionals and individuals, helping to expand their social, cultural and artistic understanding throughout the public realm.

Our students participate in all aspects of live theatre productions, create their own films and videos, travel for Study Abroad programs in Costa Rica, Hungary, Wales, Russia to name a few, participate in special master classes with guest artists, land internships with organizations such as Disney, Viacom and others. In addition guest artists from all over the world work with students as designers, directors, filmmakers and performers through our international connections.

The Department of Theatre and Film strongly endorses a policy of individual and collective respect for each member of our diverse community. Our department strives to provide a safe and supportive educational environment that both nurtures all components of human experience and functions as a crucible for creative expression.
