The Department of Theatre Arts offers training in both the practical and academic aspects of theatre. Undergraduates may specialize in acting, directing, design and technical theatre, theatre history and criticism, or any combination of these.
While the department is not a professional school, the presence of strong graduate programs creates the atmosphere of professional training. Instead of the protected environment of a conservatory, undergraduate theatre training at Pitt takes place within the context of the liberal-arts experience at a large, urban university.
