Course content

Master of Fine Arts

The M.F.A. in Design for Theatre is an intensive graduate program intended to prepare students for design in the professional theatre in Canada. The Program can accommodate very few students, and admission is competitive.

Instruction in the M.F.A. Design for Theatre program centres around a core of studio classes emphasizing development of the designers' graphic, conceptual, and research skills. In addition, Design for Theatre students may assist faculty and other practicing designers on projects outside the University, design theatre productions at UBC and elsewhere, and work in film. The program generally takes two or three years to complete, and culminates in a design thesis/theses.

The M.F.A. Directing program is a professionally-oriented intensive graduate program, intended for those who wish to extend and enhance their directing practice. The Directing program can accommodate very few students, and admission is competitive.
