The MFA in Design and Production at Saint Mary's College is the first graduate level program in the United States created specifically for dance. We develop artists who are at the forefront of international design and production for dance.
Our MFA in Design and Production for dance provides practical, concrete experience and knowledge that a graduate can take into the real-world. In a time when designers and technicians are faced with mixed technologies and widely varying budgets, we believe that problem solving, improvising and the ability to adapt are all integral skills to the field of design and production for dance. We offer four areas of focus: Design, Production, Digital Media and Theoretical Studies. Our students graduate uniquely prepared for careers in design, management, administration, and academics.
