Master of Fine Arts in Theatre: Acting

Creating Connections

The M.F.A. Acting program offers extensive training to prepare candidates for professional careers in theatre. We seek talented and generous theatre artists dedicated to exploration, growth, and collaboration. Our aim is to provide training that strengthens all aspects of the actor’s instrument—in an environment that challenges perception, expands the intellect, and engages the heart—ultimately developing in our students a way to live truthfully and personally on stage, to expertly tell stories that reveal the depths of our shared humanity.

The Department of Theatre's next MFA acting cohort will begin in Fall of 2026. If you would like to be notified when applications for that cohort open, please fill out our formAuditions will begin in October of 2025.
