Compensation Grade/Rank Assistant Professor/Rank II Department Information The Department of Theatre and Dance offers the Bachelor of Arts degree with majors and minors in Theatre and Dance and anticipate the addition of a major in Musical Theatre in Fall 2019. We believe that artistic exploration is integral to a liberal arts education. Participation in the process and product of theatrical production engages the mind, the body, and the spirit, and serves as a creative catalyst for further artistic, scholarly, and socio-cultural exploration across and within a variety of disciplines. Performance is the liminal space between form and meaning; it is the space of stories and the canvas of storytellers. The study of dance and theatre is the study of culture, of human emotion and intellect, of things felt and seen, and of the body, the voice, and the unknown. These linkages between exterior life and interior existence drive and unite our community of artists, scholars, and educators. The College of Liberal Arts at the University of Nevada, Reno is central to the intellectual and artistic life of the University of Nevada, Reno.
