MFA in Theatre

A Student's Thoughts

The skills I gained in one year are remarkable. Having worked in many professional theatres before coming to Virginia Tech, I know I made the right decision coming here. I am very proud of the work I have done at Virginia Tech as well as the work of my peers.

"I have gained an incredible amount of artistry, skill, and confidence through this program. The faculty, in particular Bob L. and Patty, challenged me to meet high expectations - - this is a great place to learn, fail, and learn some more." - Amy Luce, M.F.A. in Stage Management, '14
