UT Theatre maintains an active presence on the international theatre scene through the engagement of distinguished guest artists, touring to foreign theatre festivals, participation in international conferences, and other educational initiatives.
Applicants must have completed undergraduate degrees approximately equivalent in requirements to those specified for degrees conferred by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Three letters of recommendation and interviews with appropriate faculty are required of all applicants. Applicants for admission to the MFA design/technical theatre programs must submit samples of their work. Auditions are required of MFA degree performance applicants. Not all areas of concentration accept applicants every year.
For detailed information about the graduate program, contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Theatre.
Requirements for a Second Master’s Degree
Students admitted to the MFA program who have already earned a master’s or a doctoral degree may apply up to 12 credit hours from the previous graduate program to the MFA degree with approval of the student’s committee, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Dean of the Graduate School.
Any such credits applied from a previous graduate program would be from courses that are directly relevant to the student’s MFA curriculum and must have been earned within the time limit (6 years) established for completion of the MFA.
