A student who wishes to be considered for admission to the graduate programs in Theatre Studies should present the equivalent of at least nine hours of undergraduate college work in theatre. An undergraduate degree in theatre is not required. The committee on admissions tends to select those applicants showing interest in studying theatre as a cultural expression in a broad intellectual context.

Additional Admission Requirements:

  • One original scholarly or critical essay on theatre history or drama
  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores in the verbal section. (Exceptions are given only to applicants with extensive professional experience.)
  • Foreign students must also submit official TOEFL scores. In addition, the Test of Written English (TWE) is strongly encouraged for non-native speakers.

Application Deadline: Applications submitted by March 15 will receive full consideration for funding.
