The study and creation of Theatre, Dance, and Film constitute ways of thinking about the world, ways of connecting with the past to illuminate the present, ways of exploring and understanding both the larger society and our innermost lives.

No less than philosophy and science, these arts are forms of cognition, and every production or performance is simultaneously an act of research and an act of communication, a way of encountering, examining, and sharing with others the most confounding experiences we can know as human beings.

As a student taking courses in the Department of Theatre, Dance and Film you will combine artistic practice with scholarly inquiry and be inspired and encouraged to engage simultaneously in craft and context, creativity and critical thinking. You may major in Theatre, Dance, or Film, while exploring the interdisciplinary links between these disciplines. 

As a department, we foster a healthy atmosphere of artistic inquiry, creative exploration, and intellectual rigor.  We are committed to understanding the social and historical roots from which contemporary work in dance, theatre, and film springs.

The faculty in TDF at Franklin & Marshall College invite you to join us!
