¿Qué aprenderé?

Becoming a theatre artist requires mastering one field of study while developing knowledge and respect for the others. For this reason MFA students at Iowa have their own intensive programs and work closely with one another across disciplines. The art of the theatre occurs most successfully with this kind of open collaboration. When you apply for an MFA program at Iowa you are applying for admission to a community of artists.


Iowa’s MFA program in Directing combines a highly innovative curriculum with a distinctive emphasis on new work. Along with intensive course work in direction, the program provides emphases in three areas: developing original works, using digital media for live performance, and preparing students to become entrepreneurs in the arts. Additional courses in acting, design, and theatrical analysis help develop and focus the talents and skills of unusually creative artists.

As a graduate student in directing you will direct two or three productions each year. Many of these will be new plays. Iowa is known as The Writing University and we produce more new scripts each year than most programs do in five. You will work constantly with new material that is aesthetically challenging. You will originate or devise theatrical events never before seen on stage. Given such a range of creative opportunity, and the freedom to collaborate with an outstanding faculty and world-class guest artists, you will graduate well prepared for a career in the ever-evolving field of directing.

Our mission is to train the theatrical leaders of the future: dynamic artists who understand and promote the development of new work, visionaries who set out to change the world. In pursuit of this aim, we seek individuals who are socially conscious, personally disciplined, collaboratively sensitive, and hungry for the challenge of new experience.

There are three major components to the MFA directing program: course work, directing productions, and teaching or administrative work. A series of courses, totaling a minimum of 62 semester hours, forms the academic core of the program; students with previous training and/or practical experience may request some substitute courses.
