Towson University's MFA in Theatre Arts cultivates the self-generative artist through an interdisciplinary, process-oriented, and collaborative experience. Every student will engage with a diverse range of practical approaches and theoretical perspectives in order to help develop an individual aesthetic that is expressed through the creation of new work.
Our program is designed as an experimental, self-directed process that will challenge, expand and develop each participant's artistic vision. It is for artists who cannot be content working in a single discipline or in the traditional conservatory model. The program is dedicated to educating and invigorating world citizens of theatre who engage deeply in our local and global communities, and wish to combine the life of an artist with the skills and sensibilities of entrepreneurs and educators.
