Our Mission

In the Department of Theatre Arts & Dance at Sonoma State University, we develop artists and educators who, as vital human beings devoted to a process of discovery, seek their ultimate expression in performance.

The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance offers valuable and rewarding opportunities for serious, motivated students to develop their imaginations, intellects, knowledge base, craft and artistry in a stimulating and congenial environment at a campus located in a beautiful and culturally rich area. We aim to develop artists and educators who are vitally engaged with each other and the world through the performing arts.
