Theatre Teacher Training - Master of Theatre Studies

 

Eligibility

 

I am not currently teaching theatre. May I still participate in your Master of Theatre Studies program?

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.

Is there any way for a teacher with only one year of experience to participate in your Master of Theatre Studies program?


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 say I must have taught for at least two years. Does this mean I can't apply until the middle of my third year of teaching?


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.

You say I must have taught for at least two years. May this be in any discipline or does it have to be two years of teaching theatre.


It must be two years of teaching theatre.

Are middle school theatre teachers eligible for the Master of Theatre Studies program?


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.
