Overview

The purpose of the Ph.D. in Theatre is to develop leaders in the areas of both studies and practice.  The curriculum requires an intense exposure to critical theory, history and historiography, and the craft and art of performance, especially directing.  The majority of graduates become teachers in higher education, artists or both.  

Recent and former students from the M. A. and Ph.D. programs work or have worked across a wide array of academic and artistic settings, including Southern Methodist University, The Ohio State University System, Chapman College, Washburn University, CBS, Disney Productions, University of Costa Rica, University of Minnesota (Morehead), Southern Illinois University, University of Georgia, Texas Christian University, University of Minnesota (Duluth), University of Arizona, and Converse College.
