Graduate Directing Program

The MFA Directing program recruits applicants through the National Unified Auditions and Interviews conducted by University/Resident Theatre Association in New York and Chicago. We strongly encourage those interested in our program to apply in the fall at http://urta.com/index.php. Applications are thoroughly screened, and top candidates are invited to interview at Temple or one of the U/RTA audition sites. After all candidates have been interviewed, those accepted are notified by letter by April 15. Candidates unable to interview as part of the NUA/I interviews should follow the criteria listed below.

Applications for admissions to the MFA Directing program are accepted every three years. The next eligible entrance date is Fall 2015, and applications can be submitted beginning in September 2014.

For more information, please see the Graduate Bulletin.
