GW's Department of Theatre and Dance fosters a vibrant community of scholars, students and artists in the creatively stimulating environment of Washington, D.C.—a hub of international cultural institutions and performing arts. We nurture our students through the process of artistic self-expression using a collaborative approach and providing global context. Our faculty includes a diverse forum of experts who bring their knowledge and talents to a lively educational experience.
Students that thrive in our programs have the following qualities:
- Artistic and intellectual curiosity
- Courage and a sense of adventure
- A desire to change the world (or, at the least, one's self) through art
