Welcome to the Millikin University Department of Theatre and Dance. We are a nationally recognized program, offering conservatory style training rooted in a liberal arts education. Our Performance Learning approach to education synthesizes theory and practice, offering students valuable insight and hands-on experiences that will prepare them for professional success. Four primary departmental learning goals, technique, analysis, collaboration and professionalism, are woven into all aspects of the four-year experience and serve as a foundation upon which students will build personal, academic, and career goals.
The Millikin experience is rich with opportunity and artistic context. From our six degree programs and two minors, to our London Semester, from our student-run theatre company, Pipe Dreams Studio Theatre, to our ambitious production season, from our New Musicals Workshop to the many invited guest artists who visit campus, there is something for everyone seeking a comprehensive education in theatre. We invite you to explore this website and discover the many exciting facets of the Millikin University Department of Theatre and Dance.
