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."
