Department of Theatre


The Villanova University Theatre Department

The Villanova University Department of Theatre offers a Master of Arts degree, a Master of Arts degree with a certificate in Nonprofit Management and a graduate certificate in practical theatre. Classes are taught by our award-winning faculty who have distinguished themselves in the field of professional theatre: directing, writing, designing, acting, and producing. Villanova's program is the only theatre M.A. in the United States that places equal emphasis on scholarly and creative work. 

Students undergo a rigorous course of study that is a combination of scholarly, artistic, and practical approaches to theatre.  The comprehensive M.A. provides crucial tools for the developing theatre practitioner, educator, or scholar.  Students matriculate into the program from a wide variety of undergraduate majors, spanning the humanities and the sciences.  The result is a vibrant, diverse community of scholars with a passion for theatre as a common denominator.  The experience and knowledge our students gain in class, on stage, and behind the scenes allows these well-rounded scholars to embark on careers as actors, directors, stage managers, playwrights, dramaturgs, administrators, teachers, and critics.

Theatre department faculty, in conjunction with a full-time staff, produce a four-show season of plays; students enrolled in the M.A. and graduate certification programs participate in the theatre season in the areas of acting, stage management, dramaturgy, public relations, scenic and costume construction, and technical theatre support.
