MFA Directing students are trained according to the principles of Stanislavski, Vakhtangov, and the Method, which address all elements of stage directing, from the first reading to opening night. Through theory and practice, directing students study the relationships of the director to the play, the playwright, the actor, the designers, and the audience in order to create a fully realized production, no matter how diverse the style. Directing students study acting throughout their three years to support their directing skills and their work with actors. The MFA in Directing is a three-year program. Specialized courses include: ■ Directing ■ Devising ■ Storytelling and the Use of Space ■ Creative Collaboration ■ Design ■ Playwrights and Directors Unit MFA in Directing Upon graduation, students receive the title of Working Finalist at The Actors Studio and are invited to attend sessions there for one year and audition for membership.
