With a richly comprehensive curriculum, the UC Irvine Department of Drama provides students with real-time acting practice in productions, as well as opportunities to learn hands-on technical skills. Since its founding in 1965 as one of the original departments in the University, UCI Drama has supported students’ artistic development through courses on directing, design, musical theatre, playwriting, stage management, dramatic theory, and theatre production.

At any given time, UCI Drama alumni may be seen on Broadway, in national tours, and on film and television screens. Our alumni are also represented in technical positions throughout the country in a variety of sought-after positions as stage managers, sound designers, lighting designers, scenic designers, costume designers, and production managers.

UCI’s Drama department offers students the opportunity to train artistically and technically to become the performers and storytellers of the future. UCI students study drama to investigate music, movement, visual and aural aesthetics, and exploring the latest technological trends.

The UCI Theatre Guild has been in existence for over fifty years, and has never played a more crucial role to our department’s continued success than it does right now.
