The joint A.B. in Theatre/M.A. in Nonprofit Management and Leadership is designed to train highly motivated students in the artistic, critical, and administrative skills and sensibilities needed for successful careers in theatre management, administration, and development. We place a strong emphasis on using applied theatre and the arts to foster social change and to serve communities in the nonprofit sector. Our students will be the future nonprofit theatre leaders and entrepreneurs.
The Double Dawgs program was created to give ambitious and motivated students a competitive advantage in today’s knowledge economy. By earning both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in five years or less, students can save time and money while positioning themselves for success after graduation.
Theatre majors can apply for this pathway and begin taking graduate level courses in their third year, some of which will also count towards their bachelor’s degree. Courses may include: Internships, Fundraising, Stage Management, Community-Based Theatre, Play Direction Laboratory, Grant Writing, Theory and Management of Nonprofits, and related elective courses from other departments. Your degree program can be uniquely tailored to your interests and goals.
