Program Description:

Binghamton University offers graduate studies for performers, directors, technicians, designers, stage managers, and academics who wish to take their involvement in theater to the next level. The program divides student concentrations into tracks to suit individual interests and goals. Courses of study are usually highly specialized. They provide ample opportunity for formal projects, experimentation, collaboration, performances, and scholarship. We have five on-campus theatrical facilities, and members of our faculty are accomplished practitioners who are nationally and internationally active. They teach acting, directing, voice, movement, lighting, costuming, stage combat, and all other aspects of theatrical production. In addition, our research specialists and scholars specialize in dramatic and theatrical techniques and styles from cultures around the world, as well as those in the western tradition. They also are experts in performance theory, dramatic theory and criticism. Furthermore, we have active associations with Chile and China, involving teaching and production exchanges. Recent years have seen a variety of productions on our stages, a few of which include: • Rent • Three Penny Opera • Henry V • Noises Off The M.A. program typically takes two years, and culminates in a thesis (production or piece of scholarly writing, depending on specialization of the student) or other capstone project. We invite you to visit our website to read faculty profiles, tour our theater spaces, and to see what else Binghamton University has to offer.
