The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Directing is an innovative two-year program designed to train students to work professionally and to teach at the collegiate level.

Every other year two MFA Directing candidates will be chosen to join a company of eight MFA Actors, six MFA Designers, and two MFA Theatre for Youth candidates. MFA Directing students must complete a 60-hour course load combining the historical-theoretical- literary areas of directing with the practicalities of production.
