    Historical Background

    The Department of Drama at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is one of the four departments in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts. It was created in 1965 when UCI was founded. Over the years, drama at UCI has been associated with three significant names: Clayton Garrison, Robert Cohen, and Richard Triplett. As the founding members of the Department of Drama, Garrison, Cohen, and Triplett took responsibility for teaching and acting, directing and dramatic literature, and design, respectively.
    During the 1970s the Department of Drama launched a two-year master of fine arts (M.F.A.) program. At this time, it experienced a surge in faculty and enrollment due in part to the construction and operation of the Fine Arts Village, a complex on campus that included three theaters. Growth continued during the 1980s when UCI's Department of Drama achieved national and international recognition due to the increase in faculty, courses, play production, and faculty publications.
    As of 2008, the Department of Drama offers six B.A. degrees (Acting, Design, Directing, Dramatic Literature, History, and Theory, Music, and Stage Management) and seven M.F.A. degrees (Acting, Directing, Stage Management, Scene Design, Costume Design, Lighting Design, and Sound Design).
