Theatre Teacher Training - Master of Theatre Studies

 

Eligibility

 

Because the Master Degree requires significant work at your school during the school year, to participate in the program you must be currently teaching theatre in a program that actively produces plays. If there is room in one of our 3-credit Elective/Professional Development courses, you may be accepted to an individual course.


Unfortunately, we do not accept applicants into the Master of Theatre Studies program who have less than two years of experience. If there is room in one of our 3-credit Elective/Professional Development courses, you may be accepted to an individual course. Credits from these courses may transfer to our Master of Theatre Studies Degree when you are accepted.


You may apply during your second year of teaching theatre. This means you will have completed two years of teaching by the time the summer residency portion of the curriculum starts.


The Master of Theatre Studies requires significant production work at your school during the school year. Most middle schools do not have a theatre program or production facilities necessary to support participation in this program. Generally we consider only high school or community college teachers. If you believe that your middle school program might be an exception to our criteria, please contact ACTS with specific details. If there is room in one of our 3-credit Elective/Professional Development courses, you may be accepted to an individual course.
