Known familiarly as “Sewanee” by its students, faculty, staff and friends, the University of the South offers an unmatched educational experience. The university remains purposefully small and dedicated to building a sense of community. The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to the development of the whole person through a liberal arts education of the highest quality. Outstanding students work closely with distinguished and diverse faculty in a demanding course of humane and scientific study that prepares them for lives of achievement and service. The Department of Theatre and Dance is housed in Tennessee Williams Center, a state-of-the-art performance facility. Sewanee offers the student a strong foundation in all areas of the theatre: acting, directing, design, dance, playwriting, history, literature, and performance theory, while studying in a unique liberal arts program.
