Texas Woman’s Drama Program becomes Theatre Program
The Texas Woman’s University Drama Program and the Department of Music and Drama have received approval from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to change their official titles to the Theatre Program and the Department of Music and Theatre.
After thoughtful consideration and informed research, the Theatre Program began the process of changing its name in the summer of 2016. “Theatre” was found to be the more established and recognizable term to professionals, students and patrons alike.
The change is intended to better reflect the scope and variety of the work performed within the program, while also allowing for increased visibility to incoming or interested students. In addition, the new program title is expected to provide better search engine results on digital platforms, leading to the newly designed program website.
