Welcome to the School of Dance, Theatre, and Arts Administration at The University of Akron, where undergraduate and graduate students explore and expand their educational and cultural horizons through comprehensive investigations of art and life.

The Summer Degree Program in Theatre, designed for advanced students of theatre arts, is structured so that the program can be completed in intensive five-week sessions over the course of three summers.   This program is particularly popular with teachers desiring to complete a graduate degree in theatre without having to take leave from their jobs.

The graduate program leading to a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Theatre Arts with an option in Arts Administration is one of approximately 25 programs across the country with a curriculum designed to prepare students for successful careers in the business of not-for-profit arts.
