Introduction to Graduate Programs

CWRU’s Department of Theater offers two dynamic graduate programs to chose from.

Master of Fine Arts students prepare for careers as professional actors in a conservatory partnership between the Department of Theater and Cleveland Play House (CPH).  This partnership is a unique alliance between one of the oldest academic theater programs in the United States and the nation’s first regional theater.  Features of the program include:

  • A New York City Showcase before an audience of agents and producers, directed by New York Casting Agent Paul Fouquet, of Elissa Myers Casting.
  • Membership in Actors’ Equity Association upon successful completion of the program.

Master of Arts students prepare for careers in theater and education or further graduate study.  Our program offers broad-based advanced study in the literature and critical analysis of theater, with the opportunity to focus in directing, playwriting or a specialization of the student’s choice.
