Our Summer M.A. for Theatre Educators program is an affordable and convenient path for busy theatre educators to accomplish a graduate degree in three short summer sessions. Coursework in the Summer M.A. is developed keeping in mind that you want to further develop your theatre programs and your classes. Our faculty is eager for the opportunity to teach working professional theatre educators. Besides the dedicated faculty, you will have at your disposal the many resources and amenities that the University of Houston has to offer its graduate students.

Twelve theatre educators will be accepted this summer to begin their two-year path toward a Master of Arts in Theatre. Classes will run Monday – Thursday from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. for three and a half weeks. Students will have long weekends to study and to explore the exciting arts community that Houston has to offer. The last week will be spent studying with some of the most eminent and established theatre companies in London, New York, and Chicago.
