Advanced study of literature and rhetoric will greatly contribute to your skill set and employability.

Students in the Master of Arts program in Theatre enjoy excellent facilities and receive individual guidance in small classes. The program is designed to ground the student in advanced fundamentals of theatrical theories and practice while accommodating individual interests and strengths. With a broad curriculum that balances both academic and production experiences, the program constitutes a period of study and practice en route to professional work, teaching or advanced degrees. Courses are a carefully planned combination of theory and practice. Theatre students choose a sub-specialization in history, criticism or some aspect of performance, technology or design.
