School of Theatre


Mission Statement

The School of Theatre is dedicated to preparing students of all identities for professional and academic careers in arts and cultural industries. Providing an inclusive learning environment as key to a well-rounded humanities education, we offer a variety of degrees and concentrations that encourage students to tailor their training to their creative and scholarly passions and intentions. Graduating students move into careers and further educational institutions as informed and empowered artists, theorists, and technicians; the practical skills learned apply not only to the arts but also to multiple related professions and industries.

Accomplished professional creative practitioners from all over the world, contribute to the School’s cultural insight and cutting-edge performance tools. Our programming commits to spotlighting topical issues, celebrating shared social values, and exploring humanity. With diversity, equity, and inclusion among our core values, we work  to honor the experience, perspectives, and unique identities of our students, faculty, staff, guest artists, and audience. The School also has a unique and significant place within Louisiana State University and seeks to contribute in a visible way to the quality of life and economic growth of both the state and the region.
