Our mission is to provide a transformative education that aligns performance and production with academic inquiry and professional experience as we engage our global society through the living art of theatre.

The Department of Theatre is a community dedicated to creativity, collaboration, and excellence—and committed to the values of generosity, integrity, respect, and rigor—all in the pursuit of innovative ways to see, investigate, and make theatre for a new generation.

Through extensive production and performance experiences and working in professional theatre environments on co-op, students develop a deep understanding of the skills and artistry needed to create the foundation of a meaningful career.


These are our commitments to equity, diversity and inclusion:


We commit to fostering conversations, exchanges, and experiences that empower, spark, and challenge us to think and act responsibly and empathetically among our artistic community at Northeastern University, in Greater Boston, and beyond.


We commit to deconstructing the existing barriers of exclusion to motivate and uplift; we will foster relationships across cultural boundaries to facilitate an inclusive and accessible artistic community at Northeastern University, in Greater Boston, and beyond.


We commit to looking beyond received wisdom to intentionally engage with high quality and dynamic works, to ask hard questions about the world, our source materials, and who we are as people through creative exploration and self-expression.


We commit to acknowledging and embracing the unique identities of each and every member of our community; we promise to treat each other as equals, regardless of our differences, and to choose humanity in the face of conflict.


We commit to creating a diverse community where any individual can speak freely and honestly; we aim to recognize and use our privilege to advocate for underrepresented voices at Northeastern University, in Greater Boston, and beyond.
