Life After Ursinus
Ursinus College’s Theater and Dance programs offer historical, critical, and
practical training in the performing arts. Whether you pursue a career in the
arts or take a class or perform on our stages, the Ursinus Theater and Dance
programs will prepare you for a life in which critical thinking, aesthetic
awareness, and communication are integral components.
An Ursinus education is founded on leadership, innovation, and discernment.
Our rigorous liberal arts degree in Theater or Dance prepares students to live the questions that give their journeys meaning while also giving them a competitive edge in their pursuit of professional work and graduate education in both the arts and other fields.
Not only do our students enjoy successful careers and earn graduate degrees in Theater and Dance, but they also use the self-knowledge and skills they have honed to pivot and thrive in other fields like Communications, Education, Politics, Library and Information Technology, Business Management, and Public Relations, among others.
A sampling of the graduate schools to which our alumni have been admitted include New York University, Cornell University, Brown University, Emerson College, the New School, and Monmouth University, to name just a few.
Our students have been accepted into professional training programs such as Atlantic Acting School, New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, and the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.
