Thanks for your interest in the Department of Theatre. 

The Department of Theatre at Texas A&M University-Commerce is located in the magnificent Performing Arts Center on the shores of beautiful Gee Lake and in the Journalism Building, a well equipped facility with a striking mosaic mural on its front edifice. The department houses a modern 304-seat playhouse, an experimental “black box theatre,” KETV television studios, student radio (KKOM), the newsroom for the print and online editions of The East Texan, the student newspaper, offices of the online magazine, and instructional journalism labs with state-of-the-art computers and software for classes of the Journalism Division.

Theatre is one of the widest-ranging departments at Texas A&M University-Commerce, with programs in Journalism, Radio-Television, Theatre and Speech.  Still, all of our programs are basically about communication, whether it’s online, in print, over the airwaves, from the stage, in front of a business meeting, or from one person to another.  If any of these interest you, we have a lot in common.  Please send us message, give us a call, or come to see us in person.
