About

This 3-year, pre-professional MFA program in Theatre and Film Studies at the University of Georgia offers concentrations in acting; scenic, lighting, and costume design; and dramatic media. Facilities include motion capture studio, digital video editing facilities, and computer animation/CAD laboratory.

Overview

Graduate work is offered in the areas of history and theory of theatre and the dramatic arts for the PhD degree and in the creative and technical aspects of stage, film, TV, and digital media for the MFA degree. Facilities include four theatres, motion capture studio, digital video editing facilities, and an exceptional computer animation/ CAD laboratory. Extensive library facilities and cooperative research arrangements with cognate departments are available.

The Department of Theatre and Film Studies at the University of Georgia promotes the study of dramatic art across all cultures and in all its current media, including stage, film, computer animation, motion capture and interactive narrative. We offer two graduate degree programs: the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The MFA program is pre-professional in nature, offered with concentrations in acting; scenic, lighting, and costume design; and dramatic media. The PhD program emphasizes research in the history and theory of dramatic art.

Programme Structure

  • The MFA concentration in Acting prepares students to be artists, entrepreneurs, and teachers in theatre, film, and media. Building on a performer’s core strengths, the program cultivates the artist’s individual voice with intensive studies in acting, voice, and movement that includes training by faculty specialists in Stanislavski, Meisner, Michael Chekhov, Alexander, Linklater, LeCoq, and Laban.
  • The MFA concentration in Design allows students to focus on costume, scene or lighting design. While the primary focus is on designing for stage, students also learn to apply the same design principles to a wide range of media, including film, television, computer animation, video games and interactive installations.
  • The MFA concentration in Dramatic Media focuses on three distinct but interconnected areas: 3D computer animation; interactive media; and the integration of interactive media into live performance.
