The Theatre Department offers a Bachelor of Arts degree, or a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre. We also offer Minors in Theatre and Dance that pair easily with other degree programs available on the SUNY Oneonta campus.

Majors combine academic courses with practical experience, using state-of-the-art facilities, current theatre pedagogy and cutting-edge technology. The Theatre Department manages two excellent theatre spaces,The Goodrich Theater, a 487 seat proscenium space, and the Hamblin Theatre, a flexible black box facility.

Both theatres are housed in the Fine Arts Building and the theatre plant includes well-equipped scenery and costume shops, dressing room facilities; as well as teaching, office, and studio spaces.
