George Mason University’s School of Theater provides a rigorous, professional and inclusive environment that promotes creative exploration, individual initiative, community building, and multidisciplinary projects. Students collaborate with others, hone their work ethic, and take responsibility for their own artistry as they forge creative partnerships with peers and faculty.
At Mason, we offer student artists individualized mentoring, a dynamic curriculum, and practical opportunities in performance, directing, musical theater, play development, design and technical theater, and theater education. We help students find their passion, express it, and refine it through their craft. We believe that the best preparation for tomorrow’s artists combines the breadth of a liberal arts education, the depth of discipline-specific training, and the incomparable test of hands-on experience.
