The Theatre and Dance department at UNR offers a BA in Musical Theatre, a BA in Theatre with an emphasis in Acting or Design/Tech, and a BA in Dance. We are moving towards a season with two musicals, two straight plays and two dance concert, ensuring many production opportunities for students. We are a small and rapidly growing department, offering close individual attention in an ever-expanding range of performance and design/tech classes. Theatre and Dance is closely affiliated with the Music department, and double majoring is possible either within or outside of the arts.
Like the department, Reno is a growing and changing city with plenty of things to do, from abundant outdoor recreation opportunities in nearby Lake Tahoe to lots of cool new restaurants and coffee places. UNR delivers the big college experience with a small campus feel. The WUE program offers low tuition to students in western states.
