Through rigorous learning, skill training, and aesthetic practice, the Brandeis Department of Theater Arts fosters a creativity that connects to scholarship and a scholarship that is responsive to the individual and to the community. As artists, practitioners and scholars, we create new work and ideas, and challenge our students to enact change, build connections, and value diversity.
Our rich history is embedded in the legacy of Leonard Bernstein and the gifted collaborators who invigorated Spingold Theater Center into being. At the forefront is a strong community of students, faculty and staff who work every day toward the common privilege of creating and discussing the world of theater through classes, lectures, workshops and performances.
The department is built on the values of creativity, diversity and inclusion, scholarship (knowledge, craft), aesthetic, risk-taking, collaboration, rigor and professionalism.
