Our Students in Their Own Words
Temple's program will provide you with the chance to learn about every aspect of the theatrical profession, which will only serve to make you more skilled, artistic, and employable. The classes that I have taken here have challenged me and forced me think outside of the box. The professors here invest in you and inspire you to realize your fullest potential not only in your development as an artist but also as a person.
Graduate students instruct and work alongside undergraduates, opportunities to gain experience are in abundance, and everyone is willing to work together to keep our passions alive.
Everyone in the department, whether they be an actor, designer, or director is here to collaborate with one another to create great work. There is so much support from the Temple Theater community that it makes it easy to learn as much as possible and have a blast doing it.
Temple's theater department is the perfect place to either find your niche in theater or hone your skills in a craft that you already love. Because of the structure of the department, students have the ability to work in any area of theater, including ushering, set construction, lighting work, acting, building costumes, stage managing, and everything in between.
Temple has connections all over Philadelphia, a city that possesses a great theater community. Graduates can be seen performing all over the city!

What I love most about Temple University's Theater Department is the passion of the faculty.Working with them has instilled a sense of drive, hunger and passion for the art that I would not trade in for the world.
Temple provides a rare opportunity to work with not only professionals in the field, but human beings who want nothing more than to see their students and the art of theatre thrive! When you choose Temple, you've made the choice to dedicate yourself to a community that nurtures learning and personal growth.
Temple's Theater Department presents outstanding resources and opportunities while providing a strong academic university education. I have studied acting and speech with nationally known masters. I have acted professionally during and in between semesters. I have learned how to build, sew, and design sound. I have made professional connections and seen easily 30 shows in Philadelphia. Come to Temple and tailor your theater education to what you want it to be - it will be worth it!
