The M.F.A. Program in Directing spans 65+ credit hours over three years. Our aim is to provide students with a comprehensive education that prepares them for a professional career as directors and creators. The updated program offers opportunities to enhance directing skills across various genres and develop expertise in generating new work.
This revamped curriculum includes a minimum of five production projects (two main season and three independent), involvement in assisting roles in the department or with other professional directors, and coursework across the department. Students will have the flexibility to concentrate on a specific theater genre that aligns with their interests.
For the Fall of 2024, we will admit three (3) directors into the program. Ideally, we encourage candidates interested in specializing in classical/Shakespeare, new plays, or musical theatre to apply. Before making a formal application, please contact Mr. Ansley Valentine, program head, for any questions. Arvalent@indiana.edu
