MFA in Directing
The MFA Program in Directing welcomes individuals who have pursued a professional career in theatre and now wish to extend their study into new areas of challenge and expertise. MFA candidates focus on developing directing skills within an interdisciplinary context, and we encourage exploration in the areas of theatre, dance, music, video and film. MFA students further benefit from working with the many professional theatre artists who visit the department, including those in the Granada Artist-in-Residence program.
Students entering the program should have clearly delineated goals for achieving a unified artistic voice and a strong point of view toward the theatre and performing arts. A slot in the department's production schedule, Director's Showcase I, is reserved for a first-year directing student. The student's second year of study will culminate in Director's Showcase II, the MFA Thesis Project.
