Current alumni are finding success after graduating with their UWG Theatre degree: they are performing on Broadway, on the many stages in Atlanta, and in film and television. Students not only act in our productions – they also design, write, direct, and market them. Our active theatre faculty work in the Atlanta theatre scene, publish in regional and national magazines and journals, and keep updated on the latest theatrical trends in order to bring new ideas to the classroom and rehearsal hall.

Unrivaled Faculty

"UWG's faculty is the best thing about the university, especially in the theatrical department. They are not just people who teach theatre simply because they have theatre degrees. They are people who are passionate about it. Many of the faculty members actually work in the industry, some of them currently, so you get to work with people who know it and get it."
