Sam Houston State University

The Costume Survey

Description provided by the program

We are an undergraduate department only, which means that our design students get to design and have realized shows in the main season. All tech students are relied on to build the shows therefore they receive consistent training throughout their undergraduate study, building in a wide variety of periods. We are also one of the few programs that offer prosthetic make up work on the undergraduate level.
