Students in TDM have the opportunity to take theater courses including dramatic literature, directing, theater history, acting, dramaturgy, design, and playwriting. The concentration combines theory and practice, emphasizing both academic research and production in a range of theaters on campus.  As the professional theater of Harvard University, the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) plays a central role in the TDM concentration.

Students take courses with professional artists at the A.R.T., and have opportunities to participate in internships that immerse them in the work of the theater and engage them with leading practitioners from around the world. Recent A.R.T. productions that Harvard undergraduates have worked on as interns include:

Waitress
Father Comes Home From the Wars
Finding Neverland
Witness Uganda
The Shape She Makes
Pippin
The Gershwins' Porgy & Bess
The Glass Menagerie
