  • Objectives
    The Specialization in Design for the Theatre program invites students to become actively involved in the complex process of conceiving, communicating and realizing the visual framework for theatrical works. Emphasis is placed on design as a highly creative discipline which, though comprised of a number of specialties—lighting, costumes and set design—makes its greatest expressive contribution to theatre when a designer has a firm grasp of the potential of each constituent part, together with an understanding of the many other aspects of production. Students progress from exploring the nature of the design process, to the cooperative nature of theatre work, developing more refined insights and skills involved in the imaginative and technical aspects of the various streams of theatre design through group projects and individual portfolio development. Senior students work on advanced individual projects, which provide them with a rich understanding of the role designers play in contemporary theatre.
