This graduate program provides training in scene design for theatre, dance, opera and film with four full time faculty who are working professionals. The curriculum helps students develop basic skills in drawing, drafting, rendering, model building, and scene painting.
The curriculum offers a sequentially developed classroom instruction, laboratory work, and practical production experience in scene design. At least 14 productions each year are fully produced and student driven in five different theatrical spaces ranging from a black box to a Broadway-scale house. Students develop highly polished professional work in their thesis gallery and their participation in national showcases. Upon graduation, students are ready to enter the profession with an enviable portfolio.
