What will I learn?

The MFA in theatre arts, which specialized in design and technical production, is awarded to students who, through the three-year course of study, explore challenges in the areas of scenery/properties, costuming, lighting, sound design, multimedia and technology with an emphasis in at least one of these areas. It is a rigorous program based on the belief that good designers must have a solid understanding of each area of design in order to be able to communicate and collaborate well with the other designers, technicians, and directors. Good designers must also have strong craft skills in order to understand how the design functions in execution. The department believes that technology is an integral tool of design and seeks to balance the education of the student in both areas.
