Graduate Programs

Applications for Fall 2020 are now being accepted. The application deadline for all programs is January 27, 2020. Applicants with high GPAs are encouraged to apply early to be considered for a Recruitment scholarship.

We are committed to the training and education of individuals who will provide  vision for the future of Canadian theatre.

We endeavour to foster in students a unique combination of practical and critical skills, with an adventurous, visionary attitude. Students are stimulated to examine the nature of theatre itself - its form and content. Our goal is to challenge our students to think independently, to develop their innate qualities of resourcefulness, innovation and imagination.

We value leadership. Our graduate students assume key leadership roles on the creative teams which plan and realize the many productions presented in the department and are well prepared to take on leadership roles when they graduate.

Our department features live performance as the site of interaction and integration of all aspects of the discipline of theatre; all graduate students participate in this culture of research and creative activity. A lively interplay between programs enriches the student experience beyond the scope of any one program.
