The MFA Theatre program with a concentration in Design & Technology allows students to focus on costume, scene or lighting design. While the primary focus is on designing for stage, students also learn to apply these same design principles to a wide range of media, including film, television, computer animation, video games and interactive installations.

Design students progress through a series of increasingly difficult assignments as assistant designer, followed by one or more realized designs for smaller scale stage or media productions, and culminating in the design of costumes, scenery and/or lighting for a major stage or media production.

Of the minimum 66 credits required for the MFA with a concentration in Design & Technology, most will be taken within the department; however, up to six credits (normally two courses) may be taken outside of the department.
