Coastal Carolina University Department of Theatre offers the most comprehensive undergraduate theatre training in South Carolina. 

The goal of the program is to cultivate practitioners for the professional theatre. This is achieved by developing a practical knowledge and competence that include sensitivity to technique, artistry, and style, as well as an insight into the role of the theatre arts. The highly focused and demanding training is enhanced by appropriate courses in the liberal arts. These are of particular importance to the theatre artist, who is charged with commenting on the human condition. The effectiveness of that commentary is dependent upon a sincere commitment to excellence in liberal arts.

The focus is on developing the skills and professionalism of students to prepare them for careers in theatre. The program will attract students who are willing to commit to structured, intensive, studio-based training and are searching for a degree that prepares them to function in the professional entertainment world.

The faculty and staff are experienced, working professional actors, designers, technicians and theatre scholars.  Many guest artists are invited each season to complement  the work of the faculty and bring a wealth of experience and viewpoints to best prepare students for the professional theatre.  In everything we do, we strive to create, maintain and support a proficient ensemble of artists in the professional environment necessary for the growth and development of our students.
