The School of Theatre offers one graduate degree: the MFA in drama (with concentrations in acting, design, directing, and theatre for youth). The MFA is a terminal master’s degree designed to develop individual artistry and provide advanced, specialized training in acting, design, directing, and theatre for youth.

The MFA is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre.

Our graduate programs offer rich and varied experiences that combine theory and practice and demands the development of skills and talents. Curricular offerings are matched by an extensive co-curricular program that includes opportunities to participate in the School’s extensive theatre production program, which includes UNCG Theatre, N.C. Theatre for Young People, Studio Theatre, and Workshop Theatre. The School of Theatre is also affiliated with Triad Stage, an equity regional theatre in Greensboro.

Generous graduate stipends and teaching opportunities allow for close working relationships with leading area artists and scholars.
