What will I study?

The program emphasizes scholarly research, grounding in critical philosophy and theory related to theatre and performance, practical coursework in analysis, performance, directing, design/stagecraft, with a special emphasis on text creation and adaptation. As partial fulfillment of the requirements for this degree, the student will present a portfolio of theatre arts projects such as an original play or adaptation, directing a play, completing a significant performance project, or designing and assisting with execution of costumes, lighting or scenery for a stage production.
