The University of Houston School of Theatre & Dance is currently recruiting a lighting designer and two costume technology students for the MFA program starting Fall 2013
The University of Houston School of Theatre & Dance strives to create a challenging and supportive environment where an inquisitive, motivated and resourceful theatre design and technology student will be given the opportunity and support to explore and develop their own individual and unique voice through artistic collaboration. Upon successful completion of the program, a UH graduate will be exceptionally well suited and qualified for a career in the theatre and the related entertainment industry.
Design students specialize and train in one or more discipline: scenic design, costume design or lighting design. All students enter the program together, and remain together for three years. Only one class is trained at a time. Collaboration is the heart and soul of the program. Students will develop a solid working knowledge of the elements and principles of their discipline in order to create a close collaborative working environment. In addition to the design and collaboration classes, the curriculum includes the study of dramaturgy, literature and theatre history.
The Design and Technology program is a professional training program that respects the traditional skills and heritage of our profession, while placing an emphasis on the new and emerging technologies and skills in our contemporary theatre practice. Our goal is to give the developing theatre artist the tools and skills that are best matched to realizing their theatrical vision.
