The Department of Performing Arts consists of three programs: Theatre, Music and Dance and Performance Studies. Students can major, minor or core concentrate in any of the three programs.
The theatre program was founded by Professor William Grandgeorge, who has been a part of Roger Williams College and University since 1969. Before moving into the Performing Arts Center in 1986, the theatre program's performances were held in the Coffee House Theatre (now a classroom in the FCAS building).
