Graduate School Bulletin - Spring 2006

THEATRE

Theatre lives at the moment of contact between actor and audience. This department expects its graduate students to approach that moment from several points: historical, critical, practical, theoretical and experimental. Within this framework, each candidate for a master of arts degree must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours. A maximum of six of these may be taken in allied subjects. Graduate students are encouraged to concentrate in one of the following areas: performance or design/technology.

Admission Requirements

It is assumed that a student who seeks a master's degree in the Department of Theatre will have had courses approximating those required for a B.A. degree with a major in theatre arts. If not, the student must remove the deficiency by taking (without graduate credit) courses in addition to those normally specified for the master's degree.

The department offers the master's degree according to both Plan A and Plan B.
