The Vision of the Department of Theatre Arts is inextricably connected to Baylor's ambitious Pro Futuris Vision. Whereas the undergraduate program in the theatre arts now stands as one of the top ranked programs in the United States, the theatre arts faculty envisions Baylor Theatre as being one of the leading academic theatre institutions in the country, in both graduate and undergraduate theatre training. The theatre arts faculty and staff are committed to the students, to the university, and to the worthiness of reaching this vision without surrendering its foundational beliefs in scholarship and artistry enriched faith.
