Loyola University Maryland

Department of Fine Arts



Our goal is to prepare students for the rigorous demands of working in the professional theatre or further study on the graduate level. Required coursework is designed to expose students to all aspects of the collaborative process – acting, directing, designing, and theatre history. Plays are taught not as literature but as blueprints for theatrical production.

Complimenting our training is required participation in our season. There is no pre-casting and no exclusion of underclassman. We are committed to mounting a wide range of plays, exposing students to a wide variety of dramatic literature and a variety of production styles. At Loyola, you will gain valuable experience for your growth as a theatre artist.

The Theatre program at Loyola builds on the long standing tradition of Jesuit involvement in the theatre. In the contemporary sense, this means a dedication to cura personalis: care for the whole person. Through the teaching of theatre, Loyola seeks to produce well-rounded students able to synthesize theory and practice, body and mind, interpretation and action.
