About

Provided through the Music, Theatre, and Dance graduate program at Kansas State University, the Masters of Art degree in Theatre offers students a broad base of theatre courses and the ability to emphasize in a specific area, such as acting, directing, playwriting, design, management, or technical theatre.

Overview

The Theatre degree from Kansas State University prepares students for teaching at the high school or community college level, for professional theatre work and for advanced study in theatre.

30 semester credits are required. All students must take: three 800-level 3 credit hour courses in dramatic literature; 3 credit hours in a 600- or above level course in acting, directing or playwriting; 3 credit hours in a 600- or above level course in design technical theatre or theatre management. 

The 15 remaining credits constitute electives which are usually in the student’s area of concentration. At least 15 credits must be at the 800-level.

Each student must complete a creative project. Creative projects involve an extended original project with written reflection. A review of the candidate’s work is conducted through an oral examination administered near the end of the degree program.

Students may apply for graduate teaching assistantship positions in public speaking, introduction to theatre, technical theatre or acting. These GTA positions cover the cost of tuition and pay an additional stipend.

General requirements

  • All international students admitted to the Graduate School must demonstrate the same level of achievement as U.S. students. That is, they must hold a degree from an established institution comparable to a college or university in the United States, have an outstanding undergraduate record, have the demonstrated ability to do graduate work, and provide evidence of language proficiency sufficient for the pursuit of a graduate degree. Admission may be denied to students from technical schools, which may provide excellent training in special areas, but do not offer degrees equivalent to those of colleges and universities. As a rule, students from abroad are not admitted to nondegree status (that is, as special students). Questions about the qualifications of international students should be directed to the Graduate School.
