The Theatre Department offers three distinct minors all designed to deepen the student’s appreciation of the theatre as an art form within the context of a liberal arts education. Coursework in all minors provides students with a foundation for theatre appreciation, focusing on the art and craft of theatre making. The Theatre Department also provides the University with a variety of general education courses in theatre designed to expand appreciation of, and future participation in, theatre. Students interested in performance opportunities should contact one of the amateur theatre groups on campus: E-52 or Harrington Theatre Arts Company.”

Healthcare Theatre is a new interprofessional educational program created by the School of Nursing and the Department of Theatre here at the University of Delaware in the Fall of 2009. It has grown into a unique collaboration between the College of Health Sciences and the Department of Theatre here in the College of Arts & Sciences. Its first accredited permanent course is HLTH/THEA 215-010 HEALTHCARE THEATRE COMMUNICATIONS: UDSPP and it runs every fall and spring semesters. There are additional experimental Healthcare Theatre courses in the pipeline.
Healthcare Theatre’s mission statement is to improve patient-centered care in the health care industry. Healthcare Theatre will do this by producing simulated patient performers, family members, and other health care providers in live standardized health care encounters. These sessions will be used to train new and current health care providers.
