The Theatre Education Master of Arts – Theatre Educator Intensive program is an academically rigorous program examining the philosophical, theoretical and practical implications in the field of theatre education. In this program, students will reflect on the bigger challenges that constantly face theatre educators in the classroom—and more broadly in the country.
This master's program features online delivery in the Fall and Spring academic terms, plus Summer workshops, to fit into the schedules of current and aspiring theatre educators. The summer workshops will involve viewing and working on theatre productions and attending classes.
Because of our mostly-online delivery model, we have been able to help educators nationwide take their instructional skills to new heights. UNC-trained theatre educators are developing gifted performers, skillful technicians and dazzling productions at universities, colleges and high schools throughout the United States.
"Our reputation for training high school drama teachers is legendary and our placement record in this area is second to none." – David Grapes, Director, School of Theatre Arts and Dance
“A major reason I’m teaching now is because of the energy, expertise and letters of support from my professors and fellow cohort members. Without them, I’d have been ill equipped, and now I’m back doing what is truly in my nature to do.
– Dennis Trowbridge, Theatre and Speech Teacher
“I use what I learned in UNC’s TEI program almost every day. The knowledge I gained has given me many tools and ideas to use in my classroom.”
– Jim Kaiser, Theatre Arts Teacher
