The M.F.A. in Costume Technology is a 60-hour curriculum including costume technology courses, costume history, costume design, dramatic literature, and history and criticism courses. You will complete the three year M.F.A. degree program with an extensive and diverse portfolio of realized production work as well as class project work in all genres of theatre, exploring various scales and scope of productions.
Additionally, you will demonstrate a comprehensive portfolio of skills. Emphasized skills include: productive methods of research, effective collaborative and communication, a mature professional process, and a rich understanding of the breadth and depth of costume technology, both historical and current.
Our Costume Technology students are assigned as cutter/draper on at least four productions during their tenure in the program. Our students also receive production experience by being first hands, stitchers, or crafts people on the departmental productions.
Our graduates are well prepared for a career in either the professional or academic environment. The goal of the program is to prepare you for participation in professional theatre and associated disciplines.
