Coursework in the Directing program at DePaul University is focused on preparation – research, theory and analysis – as well as practical application through scene study, workshops, and quarterly full-length directing assignments. Directing students complete one directing assistantship and direct a short play production in their first year, then direct up to five full-length productions over the second and third years of the program. In the final year, directors complete a thesis production in the Watts Theatre and a professional internship, chosen in collaboration with the directing faculty.
Students learn from a distinguished faculty of working professionals who possess a wide variety of backgrounds and expertise and who work with some of the most prolific and exciting theatre companies in Chicago. Two students are selected to enter the program each year.
