About Us

On July 1, 2012, a new academic department in the College of Arts and Sciences was created: The Department of Music & Theatre. The department will oversee the functions of the Theatre program, and help to shepherd in two new degrees for the college: a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and a Bachelor of Science in Theatre Education.

Theatre has long been a tradition at Xavier University. We are excited to continue that tradition, and to move forward in this new direction by solidifying theatre, and the arts, as an integral part of the unique experience of Xavier University.

We welcome you to explore our new department, and its programs, and we look forward to your involvement at Xavier!

Department Mission

The Music & Theatre Department contributes intellectually and artistically to the cultural life of the University and its surrounding community.
