B.F.A. in Theatre-Directing

The Directing program provides students the requisite skills and experience necessary to direct a theatrical production.

The all-encompassing nature of the curriculum ensures students understand the workings of all areas of production.

Students apply their knowledge in classroom directing assignments, and working alongside faculty directors as assistant directors. In addition, upperclass students have the opportunity to submit proposals to direct both Student Theatre Production and main stage productions as part of the Drake Theatre season.
