Overview

The Master of Arts in Theatre provides less practical training than the MFA degree. Since its purpose is not to train persons for professional careers in the arts and entertainment industry, the program of study is more theoretical. MA students typically pursue a variety of goals: increasing specific theatrical skills, extending theatre skills into new areas, preparing for entrance into doctoral Theatre programs, or in the case of educators, expanding their expertise and credentials. Students may be admitted on either a full-time or part-time basis.
