The Costume Survey

Description provided by the program

The University of Kentucky's undergraduate program provides hands on training in design and/or technology. UK's Department of Theatre & Dance gives undergraduate students the opportunity to design or produce projects in technology on the main stage as early as their junior year if they show the discipline and drive necessary. In addition, there are strong non-production related projects in technology with one on one instruction. Undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to pursue a graduate education upon leaving the university as well as summer work opportunities within the field. NAST Accredited. The costume studio in the College of Fine Arts serves the Department of Theatre & Dance and UK Opera Theatre.
