UNC School of Theatre Arts and Dance Receives National Accreditation

The National Association of Schools of Theatre has awarded full accreditation to the University of Northern Colorado School of Theatre Arts and Dance, making it one of only two undergraduate theater programs in Colorado to earn the designation.

The school offers a bachelor's degree in Theatre Arts with acting, design technology and theatre studies concentrations; a bachelor's in Musical Theatre; and a bachelor's and a master's in Theatre Education for theater teachers.

The master's degree becomes the only NAST-accredited graduate degree program in the state.

Institutional accreditation is gained only through an extensive peer review process every six years.

NAST, founded in 1965, has approximately 178 accredited institutional members. It establishes national standards for undergraduate and graduate degrees and other credentials.
