The MFA Theatre Education program provides a unique opportunity for those who are in the beginning stages of their careers as theatre artists to further their own artistry and professional goals, while at the same time developing techniques for teaching theatre in the classroom.

About

The MFA in Theatre Education provides a unique opportunity for early but experienced career theatre artists who want to become professional trainers in movement, voice and speech, or other related theatrical crafts. Theatre Education students and their faculty mentors design individualized programs of study that focus on strong teaching specialties set in a full understanding of all aspects of performance and production. A minimum of two years is normally required to complete such programs of study.

Applicants should have a sense of where they would like their focus to be throughout their curriculum, and seek the interest and approval of whichever faculty member will oversee the bulk of their eventual training. In the final year, each student develops a thesis project that is executed in accordance with the highest professional standards.

This program seeks to:

  • Develop and expand the theatre artist’s own personal approach, sensibility, and creativity.
  • Work with the ensemble of undergraduate theatre majors in a laboratory-like setting, as a means of reinventing the idea of the artist through intense collaboration.
  • Prepare for professional life through various workshops and colloquia.
  • Draw on the professional training expertise of the faculty, so that Theatre Education students and their faculty mentors design individualized programs of study that focus on strong teaching specialties set in a full understanding of all aspects of performance and production.
