Towson University's M.F.A. in Theatre Arts cultivates the self-generative artist through an interdisciplinary, process-oriented and collaborative experience. It is for artists who cannot be content working in a single discipline or in the traditional conservatory model but instead aspire to create work by investigating new systems, forms or models.
