The mission of the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Department of Theatre & Dance is to provide students with the tools needed for preparation as theatre &/or dance educators or professional practitioners, or for continuation of their studies on the graduate level.

The goal of our program is to provide students with meaningful experiences that promote an understanding of theatre &/or dance as a medium of expression and collaboration.  Students are given opportunities for creative and critical thinking, problem solving, and exploration in an environment that values artistic integrity, understand failures as well as success, and respects the viewpoints of others in the encouragement of artistic truth.  The extensive season of the Department of Theatre & Dance serves not only as a training lab for the students, but also enhances the cultural life and aesthetic experience of the campus and is a major cultural resource for the residents of South Texas.
