The M.F.A. Program in Dramaturgy is a 60-hour course of study over a three-year period. Classes are designed to provide dramaturgs with practical tools, real and experience and a rich understanding of the contemporary theatrical landscape.
Students will receive a foundation in dramatic theory and literature as well as classes in civic dramaturgy, translation and adaptation, curation and creative producing and audience engagement, amongst others, and will have access to the broader resources of leading Research I University.
In addition to coursework, students will work as production dramaturgs on at least two projects each season.
The Dramaturgy program is kept intentionally small, with a maximum of three students total. This allows ample opportunity for each dramaturg, in consultation with their faculty advisor, to shape their course of study based on their individual interests and goals.
