Welcome to The School of Theatre, Film & Television! Our programs nurture and develop outstanding artists and scholars by providing rigorous training and mentoring by internationally recognized faculty, excellent internship opportunities, industry-standard resources, and hands-on production experience.

 

We offer comprehensive training in the art and business of storytelling, as expressed through the rich emotional experiences only offered through live theatre and the immersive cinematic experience, which prepares students to succeed in a wide range of careers—in the industry, the arts, and higher education.

 

Our alumni go on to enjoy a wide range of careers — including acting, directing, producing, dramaturgy, play and screenwriting, theatrical/entertainment designing and technical production, editing, cinematography, and in arts non-profits and higher education.

 

Our Theatre Arts program was ranked 33 out of 306 nationwide by College Factual, and Film & Television was ranked #20 among U.S. film schools by The Wrap’s “Top 50 Film Schools,” making UA one of the top places to study theatre and film.

 

Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre, our degrees offer strong theoretical foundations and rigorous conservatory-style training by a faculty of working professionals. As a member of the University/Resident Theater Association (U/RTA), we provide excellent professional theatre training in stage design and production for graduate students.
