About

The goal of the department, when training a candidate for the MFA Theatre degree at the University of Memphis, is to provide the tools, opportunities and skills for the talented student to become a master craftsman.

Overview

The mastery of a fine art requires training in a creative environment that balances intellectual insight with practical experience. The University of Memphis provides such an environment with a dedicated faculty, ample opportunities to produce, and a variety of resources for theatre artists to master their art.

Key Features 

  • Two main projects included are the Internship and Practicum. Other projects will be assigned or approved by the graduate advising committee. 
  • Each year, Theatre candidates at the University of Memphis are required to present their portfolio to a faculty panel to maintain their status in the degree program. The final project for all candidates is the completion of a comprehensive exam.

Programme Structure

All MFA candidates share in common a core of three foundation courses:
  • Theatrical Collaboration and Style, Dramatic Theory and Criticism, and Analysis of Dramatic Literature. 
  • The progression through the three year program is also similar: each artist completes a series of executed projects to develop specific skills, implement strengths and overcome weaknesses.
