The Scene Design MFA curriculum allows each student to find and shape a personal artistic vision: to explore the means of expression through historical and current theory with the expressed intention of discovering new forms, theory, and means of expression. In addition, scene designers develop aesthetic sophistication through studying theory across a range of disciplines (e.g. music composition, performance theory, directing and semiotics). Students are encouraged to explore varied practices and skillsets, including performance, model making, drafting, painting, drawing and new media.
Scene Design MFA candidates are required to pass a Graduation Review to complete the Program and obtain the MFA degree.
