The UC San Diego Department of Theatre and Dance offers a major and minor in Theatre, a major and minor in Dance, and a double major in both Theatre and Dance.

The liberal arts curriculum of the Department of Theatre & Dance is based on the belief that a good undergraduate education in theatre should provide the student with a solid background in dramatic literature and the aesthetics and history of theatrical performance as well as exposure to the different artistic components of theatrical art -- performance, playwriting, and design. Finally, such an education should incorporate participation in the production process itself.

The department stages three theatrical productions per year featuring the work of undergraduate actors, designers, and stage managers. The department also produces two dance concerts yearly, one of which showcases student choreographers. In addition, undergraduates have the opportunity to audition for graduate shows, including those directed by prestigious guest artists. Two cabaret spaces are also available almost every weekend during the school year for students to conceive and stage their own work. Theatre majors get a free ticket to every department show.
