The heart and soul of a stage falls into the hands of the scene designer. The right scene design can transport you to a new world, elicit certain moods, depict themes that no other theatrical element can, and entertain the audience by its beauty, detail or mystery. At the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, you can be a part of one of the only Scene Design programs in the country for theater, opera, dance and film, launching you into the exciting career of professional stage design. The degree is offered as separate three-year programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Each program offers unique, hands-on opportunities and an advanced, comprehensive curriculum that can only be found at UNCSA.
Brett Sellitti, a senior in the School of Design and Production, has received the Richard Hay Undergraduate Scene Design Award from the United States Institute for Theater Technology (USITT).
Students in the School of Design & Production have created an interactive installation, "Soundscape," that explores the information we exchange, the spaces where we exchange it, and the technology that assists that conversation.
