Department of Theatre and Dance

Welcome to the Department of Theatre and Dance

At California State University, Fresno, Theatre and Dance students work side-by-side with faculty and staff to create exciting and dynamic productions. Each student enjoys a great deal of individual attention from the faculty and staff, and through this close collaboration, students not only develop their talents but also learn to work well under pressure as part of a team.

Our award-winning faculty will help you find the depths of your creativity, encourage growth and foster your inspiration for life.
