Theatre for Youth (MFA)

This MFA program educates artists, teachers, scholars and advocates to take a leading role in the future of theatre. With a dual focus on working with young people and serving a diverse global community, students are equipped with the skills, knowledge and understanding to become national and international leaders in the field.

Students are prepared for careers in professional theatre as artists or education directors, specialists in arts organizations, or as teachers in elementary or secondary education.

Many students who have pursued the theatre for youth concentration under the MFA in theatre have also obtained a state of Arizona teacher certification or graduate certificates in nonprofit leadership and management or socially engaged practice in design and the arts outside of this degree program.
