The School of Theatre & Dance is a nationally recognized program, offering conservatory style training rooted in a liberal arts education. Their approach to education, known as Performance Learning, offers a comprehensive integration of theory and practice with the added component of collaboration with third-party stakeholders.
With only 1800 undergraduate students, Millikin’s intimate setting allows them to focus on working together as a community of artists from a variety of disciplines who are equally essential to the process of creating theatre. Student-artists will have a revolutionary home dedicated to Performance Learning as the Center for Theatre & Dance opens its doors in Fall 2020.
