The Department of Theatre and New Dance

Welcome to the Cal Poly Pomona Department of Theatre and New Dance!

Cal Poly Pomona's Department of Theatre and New Dance awards undergraduate degrees in theatre, emphasizing theatrical production and the "doing" of theatre. At the same time, the Department offers courses in all aspects of theatre, both artistic and academic. After completing the theatre major at Cal Poly Pomona, students are prepared to begin their careers or specialized training in professional theatre, television or film; to go for advanced training in graduate schools; or to go into teaching in high schools. We are proud to boast alumnus in numerous professional positions throughout the entertainment industry.

Due to the COVID-19 global outbreak, the Department of Theatre and New Dance has postponed all its public performances at this time. Stay tuned for plans for Fall 2020!
