Graduate Program in Theatre

MFA in Theatre

York University’s MFA in Theatre is an intensive, two-year (five-semester) conservatory program. It is designed for serious, advanced theatre artists who want to further hone their skills so as to enter - or re-enter - the profession, or to seek the knowledge needed to teach. Classes are small, hours are long and expectations from faculty are high.

The MFA in Theatre is currently offered in three fields of specialization:

The MFA is the terminal degree in these fields.  Graduate Diploma in Voice Teaching for Theatre is also offered.


The MFA in Stage Direction in collaboration with Canadian Stage was recently featured in York's online news, YFile, with a story about our current students, Ker Wells and Ted Witzel.
