M.F.A. in Design and Technology

The University of Texas at Austin is an artistic destination where you can practice a rigorous and daring exploration of your talent. We are dedicated to adventurous creative thought, critical contemplation, and the crafting of meaning through performance. We believe that the design professional is a generative, rather than an interpretive, artist. If you seek to cross the traditional boundaries of design, performance, and technology and have a strong desire to create original performance work, The University of Texas at Austin community of professional faculty, staff, and students may be the right match for you. "What Starts Here Changes The World."

Experience

Preparation for Admission

The University of Texas M.F.A. is rigorous and particularly geared toward students actively pursuing a career in theatre and film. We seek committed, focused students who have a realistic knowledge of the business and are ready to make a serious commitment to their education. Students who have been out of undergraduate school for at least a year are preferred, but our entrance requirements are based upon demonstrated talent and skill rather than professional experience.

The Department of Theatre and Dance requires an electronically submitted portfolio for faculty review. Upon completing your application, you will be contacted for a further interview if one is required. We encourage students to visit the Austin campus in order to fully appreciate the benefits of The University of Texas at Austin atmosphere.
