Virginia Tech

Housed in the School of Performing Arts at Virginia Tech, the department of theatre and cinema is a jewel of a program nestled in a large, beautiful, and comprehensive campus with a long history of excellence in student educationand training. The faculty seeks, within the contexts of a Liberal Arts curriculum, to guide students towards taking responsibility for their own learning, developing self-discipline, committing to artistic integrity, and responding to changing conditions and possibilities of theatrical and cinematic expression. Ours is a very close-knit program and a dynamic community of artists, and we take pride in the
low ratio of students to teachers (10:1). This combination offers students both personal identity and educational flexibility. As a result, our graduates express extraordinary satisfaction with their education.
