Who We Are

For UNC Asheville’s Drama Department, the stage is our lab. Through the department’s mainstage productions, TheatreUNCA, independent productions, and professional internship opportunities, drama majors test the theories and practices they study in the classroom in theatrical presentations for the public. We embrace experimentation and collaboration to produce creative and knowledgeable theatre artists who understand their responsibilities to their community, their art, and their own personal growth.

What You’ll Learn

With learning opportunities on the stage and behind the scenes, drama majors will master one of the following areas: acting, design, directing, K-12 theatre arts licensure or theater history, as well as front of the house management. We also offer student positions in the scene shop, house electrics, and the costume shop, as well as internships with local theater companies. Drama majors can grow their technical theater skills by joining the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT), while Alpha Psi Omega, the national theater honor society, produces student shows and events.
