Theatre Arts Program (M., m.)

If you're passionate about theatre, the great advantage of coming
to a small school like Saint Martin's is that you get to do it all:
acting, directing, playwriting, design and tech. It's a hands-on
program: before you graduate, you're expected to act a major role,
direct a play, write a play, and undertake a major design/technical
project - opportunities you may not get at a larger school. If you
find that you really do want to be an actor, a director, a costume
designer, a playwright, Saint Martin's offers intense mentorship and
training. But our primary concern - because we get to know you as an
individual - is your flourishing as a person.
What can I do with my degree?
Many of our graduates continue to do theatre, either
professionally or as an avocation, but many find success in
other fields besides the arts: education, social services, the
law, business. Though it is notoriously difficult to make a
living in the performing arts, the skills you develop in our
theatre program - communication, aesthetic judgment, emotional
understanding, organization ability - will serve you well
whatever your chosen field.
