Graduate Programs in Theater

CWRU’s Department of Theater offers two dynamic graduate programs:

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.

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.
