NKU's School of the Arts Theatre + Dance Program relies on intensive student involvement both inside and outside the classroom. Our staff, resources, and facilities serve the developing artist. At the program’s center is a vital balance of process and production giving each student opportunities to stretch boundaries and discover new possibilities.
Approximately 25 percent of theatre majors receive scholarships. Both the Theatre + Dance Program and the University have a variety of scholarship awards for qualified students.
Each year, more and more NKU undergraduates, graduate students, student teachers, and faculty are getting involved in studying, interning, working, and volunteering abroad.
