The Department of Theatre & Dance at the University of Memphis fosters the development
of our students on an individual basis. We offer a BFA in Theatre
with concentrations in performance, musical theatre and design and technical production
as well as an MFA in Theatre
with concentrations in directing and design and technical production. We tailor our
program to your needs. We are large enough to offer dynamic performance, design, and
crew opportunities both in the classroom and in our three performances spaces. We
also create an intimate community for intense one-on-one learning opportunities. Our
diverse faculty nurtures the individual progress of each student, be they a budding
costume designer, a musical theatre performer, or stage manager. We are both a generalized
program (where students can explore all areas of theatre) and a specialized one (where
students can hone an area of focus).
