The M.A. / M.S. degree program is designed for two populations of students:
Students who intend to pursue a Ph.D. in Theatre and need a rigorous master's degree program to prepare them for further graduate study.
Students who know they want to work professionally in theatre but are not yet certain which aspect of theatre best fits their interests.
A flexible program allows you to customize your course of study and build a solid foundation for further M.F.A. or Ph.D. studies, for teaching at the community college level, or for other professional careers in theatre, such as dramaturgy or literary management.
