The mission of the theater program at Rutgers-Camden is to develop the skills, craft, and imagination of its students, as well as to provide them with a strong understanding of the history of theater within a well-rounded liberal arts context.

The curriculum includes courses in the areas of acting, directing, playwriting, design, technical theater, dramatic literature, and theater history, with a commitment to student-generated work on and off campus. As part of a strong, interdisciplinary Department of Fine Arts, our students also benefit from exposure to visual art, music, and new digital media perspectives, with the direction and guidance of a professionally active faculty.

Students are encouraged to explore the wide range of opportunities the program offers, including participation on stage or behind the scenes in the season of plays presented each year in our two performance venues: the Walter K. Gordon Theater, a state-of-the-art 650 seat proscenium house, and the Black Box Studio, a flexible space for smaller productions.

Our proximity to the vibrant Philadelphia and New York theater scenes makes internships highly accessible. The student who successfully completes the prescribed course of study will be prepared for graduate school, a future in the theater, or a variety of other career options.
