Major in Theatre; Make the World Your Stage

Theater at University of Detroit Mercy is where you'll find all of the "greats" -- Great American City, Great Values, Great Outcomes, and Great Academics. 

We believe in the strengths gained in apprenticeship training combined with the practiced application of classroom techniques create a strong foundation for the performing arts professional. 

UDM students have the added benefit of participating in The Theatre Company, established in 1970, to gain direct experience in all aspects of theatre management and performing. 

Elite scholarships are available for theatre majors based on audition and involvement. The Theatre Company Performance Scholarships provide up to $18,000 per year for four years.  The Geraldine Regal memorial scholarship provides up to $4,000 per academic year.
