By participating in this unique, cross-disciplinary graduate certificate program that combines courses from the Department of Theatre & Dance and the Department of English, students get to know the Bard and his plays as never before.

General Information

Students experience a vital mix of performance and scholarship by taking two distance-learning courses and then visiting campus for a one-week summer intensive during the Colorado Shakespeare Festival (CSF) to learn from the nationally recognized CSF company members and CU faculty in small experiential groups. The summer intensive includes acting, directing, stage combat, Elizabethan culture, rehearsal visits, play attendance, classes on how to teach Shakespeare and more.
