program description

Many theatre majors envision themselves teaching theatre either directly after graduation or after some years in the profession as an actor, director or designer.   Incoming students are sometimes unsure whether to major in education or in theatre.  The Accelerated MAT allows students to indulge their passion by earning a degree in theatre while concurrently taking a series of education courses enabling them to go on to earn a Masters in Education within one year of graduation.  Students interested in this option should meet with the Dean of the School of Education or the MAT director early in their undergraduate program, preferably by their sophomore year.?
