Department: Theatre


The Hunter College Theatre Department offers students the opportunity to study theatre while exploring New York’s vibrant theatre scene. We offer both an MA in Theatre and an MFA in Playwriting. We believe that critical thinking and practical skills nourish each other, and students in both programs can take elective classes in acting, directing and design, in addition to theatre history, literature, and theory. Our accomplished faculty members bring their professional experience as practitioners and scholars outside the college to the classroom. The Department produces one mainstage and several smaller productions each semester, with students taking part in all areas of performance and production.

What can I do with my degree in Theatre?

The MA in Theatre prepares students to teach at all levels, work as a teaching artist or work in a nonprofit in the theatre industry.  The MFA in Playwriting prepares a select group of students for professional careers as dramatic writers in theatre, film and television.
