Georgetown University

Home to the College’s undergraduate degree programs in American Musical Culture and Theater & Performance Studies as well as dozens of performing groups in music, theater, and dance, the Department features a renowned faculty and close partnerships with leading arts organizations from the D.C. region and beyond.

Georgetown students have performed music and dance at the White House; participated in recent concert tours in Italy, Turkey, and Bolivia; and served as U.S. delegates at the UNESCO World Theater Conference in Peru.

The Theater & Performance Studies Program at Georgetown has attracted significant attention for its unique curriculum (reflecting the political and international character of Georgetown), its commitment to social justice, its focus on adapting, devising and developing new work, and its cutting-edge student productions. The program encourages interdisciplinary learning about culture, politics and identity through the lens of performance research, community-based performance, play analysis and playwriting, stage direction, cross-cultural ensemble, solo performance, dramaturgy, design and multimedia production, and world theater history.
