The mission of the Directing program is to provide students with training in the process and practice of directing. The program is designed to give students the skills they will need to continue their own development and growth as directors in professional theatre.
The curriculum provides a careful balance of academic classes, studio work, and production experience. During the three years, students will direct fully mounted productions and a variety of other projects. Only two students are accepted each year to insure close personal attention and to provide sufficient production experience for each student. In addition to applying to the program, students must also apply to Florida State University. For best consideration, we encourage you to apply by January 15. We will continue to review applications throughout the Spring Semester until all positions are filled.
