The Graduate Certification program gives a broad background in practical theatre to the student who may not wish to pursue the M.A. degree but would like to acquire the skills, vocabulary, and methodology fundamental to the practice of theatre. Students take five performance or production-related courses and participate in the theatre season.
The curriculum is progressive, concentrating at first on acting and design, and finishing with the directing course. Upon satisfactory completion of 15 credit hours, the student will be awarded the Graduate Certificate in Practical Theatre.
