Welcome to the UGA Department of Theatre and Film Studies

Welcome to the Department of Theatre & Film Studies. We offer both undergraduate and graduate studies in Theatre and Film. We are proud of the work done by our 21 faculty members, four distinguished adjunct faculty members, three full-time staff members, and 36 graduate assistants.

The Department of Theatre & Film Studies is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST) and is also a member of the University Resident Theatre Association (URTA).


In these uncertain times, The Willson Center is taking the lead in supporting graduate students and community-based artists and practitioners. Shelter Projects
The Robert C. Anderson Award is given to recent Ph.D.s for outstanding research at the university or immediately after graduating. It is named for the late Robert C. Anderson, who served as UGA’s vice president for research and president of the University of Georgia 研究 Foundation, Inc.
In the coming weeks, we will have three different theatre companies auditioning/interviewing our students. Horizon Theatre, Aurora Theatre, and Actor’s Express are looking for interns and apprentices in all areas: acting, design/tech, stage management, and directing.


We appreciate your financial support. Your gift is important to us and helps support critical opportunities for students and faculty alike, including lectures, travel support, and any number of educational events that augment the classroom experience. Click here to learn more about giving.

Every dollar given has a direct impact upon our students and faculty.
