The University of Illinois at Springfield offers various theatre courses, as well as a regular season of productions. UIS Theatre is part of the Communication program, and while UIS does not offer a theatre degree at this time, theatre studies are integral to a liberal arts curriculum and education. The combination of theatre courses and production experiences allows students to apply in the lab (the theatre) what they learn in the classroom. In addition, by participating in the theatrical process, students develop a strong sense of teamwork, as the process of creating theatre is largely collaborative.
Theatre course offerings are listed under the COM course prefix.
