Description provided by the program

The B.A./B.S. in Theatre Arts prepares students for graduate study or for entry-level opportunities in theatre through two tracks: Design and Production and Theatre Studies. Students can choose a costume design emphasis and focus on costume design or construction through upper level coursework, independent study and mentorship. This rigorous program offers an experimental lab environment for the training of the total theatre maker. Towson University's Master of Fine Arts in Theatre Arts cultivates the self-generative artist through an interdisciplinary, process-oriented and collaborative experience. The program serves 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.
