The M.F.A. in Theatre with a specialization in directing in the Department of Theatre and Dance at The University of Texas recruits a limited number of students, usually one to two early-to-mid-career directors with professional experience past their undergraduate work. Talent and achievement as a professional theatre artist, recommendations from professional sources and a clearly articulated statement of purpose are the primary criteria for admission.
Finalists will be selected for an interview. No formal interviews will take place before the selection of finalists.
