Welcome to Minnesota State University, Mankato. We offer MFA, MA, BFA and BA degrees in theatre and BA and BFA degrees in dance.
The Department of Theatre and Dance is dedicated to two primary goals. The first is to provide students with high caliber training in theatre and dance that prepares them to create theatre of any kind at any level. The second is to provide Southern Minnesota with a multifaceted, high quality theatrical experience. These goals interweave through our 18 annual productions and our rigorous academic standards to provide entertainment and education to those on both sides of the curtain.
The Department offers a Master of Fine Arts degree curriculum in a 60-credit, three-year program. The Performance MFA offers the Acting, Directing and Musical Theatre tracks; the Design/Technology MFA offers Scenic Design, Costume Design, Lighting Design and Sound Design tracks, as well as Technical Direction.
The MA in Theatre Arts is available for students who have an undergraduate major or minor in theatre or its equivalent. Thirty credits of graduate level work is required to complete the Master of Arts degree.
