Drama Courses

About Drama Courses at UHD

Cast with Audrey the plant from the fall 2015 production of Little Shop of Horrors At the University of Houston-Downtown, drama courses allow students to emphasize drama as their primary focus of study as part of the B.A. in Fine Arts while also taking courses in the related fine arts areas of art and music. A student may also choose to minor in drama.

As a faculty, we realize that not everyone who takes a drama course wants to become a professional actor or theatre technician. We also firmly believe that the study of theatre can be beneficial to any person in any profession. For this reason, we welcome everyone into our courses and activities.

Drama Activities

Available student activities include: the presentation of major productions in O'Kane Theatre each fall and spring semester; periodic student-directed One-Acts; in-house theatre work parties; attendance at local productions; and theatre trips to New York City, London, England and Athens, Greece.


Three different theatre scholarships are available to students who qualify. Each is awarded on a semester basis.
