  • An innovative new BFA in Emerging Media Arts, launching in Fall 2019, as part of the Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts.
  • The Nebraska Repertory Theatre, the state’s only professional regional theatre. Students in the school act in and design shows alongside professionals and earn points towards their membership in the Actors Equity Association.
  • Theatrix, a student-run theatre company.
  • A Guest Artist program that provides students with the opportunity to work with seasoned professionals from across the country.

Our faculty work closely with students to help them find their unique voice and to make professional connections during their time at Nebraska and after graduation. We’re always excited to welcome new students to our programs and would be happy to talk to you!
