Educational Theatre, Storytelling and the arts, M.A. is designed for educators without a theatre major interested in integrating dramatic play into their coursework. This program offers a rich array of multi-disciplinary courses in arts education, focusing on creative dramatics and storytelling. The non-certification program is open to all interested graduate candidates, regardless of prior study, and can meet the needs of already-certified English teachers seeking a master’s degree in a related area. The program nurtures creative individuals of diverse academic backgrounds who would like to engage in an integrated approach to learning through the arts across the lifespan and within various educational settings.
The 33 credit non-certification program in Educational Theatre, Storytelling, and the Arts offers similar coursework to the certification program (with a core of educational theatre, art education courses, and individualized electives). However, it does not require the final student teaching semester. The non-certification program is open to all interested graduate candidates, regardless of prior study, and is particularly suited for interdisciplinary artists of all domains: actors, dancers, poets, playwrights, musicians, other performers, and visual artists.
