From directing, choreographing, acting and dancing to designing and technical work, theatre and dance are highly collaborative art forms at SUNY Potsdam.

Students and professionals engage in creative problem solving requiring the setting and meeting of long-term goals and the analysis and understanding movement and dramatic literature.

Faculty and students work closely in support of our active production program which includes productions that are directed and choreographed by students, faculty members, and guest artists. These include ten-minute and one-act play festivals, faculty dance concerts, full-length plays and student choreographers' concerts.

View our Student Handbook (PDF) for the most up-to-date descriptions of our Majors and Minors, and their course requirements.

The Department of Theatre and Dance is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre for the B.A. in Theatre and the B.A. in Theatre Education.
