Students in the Design & Technology program build a foundation in their craft in a structured and intensive curriculum focused on career preparation and learning industry standards. Practical experience is gained by working behind the scenes on productions. Students are also involved in every step of the process from designing concepts through realizing those designs, creating everything that goes into making a production spectacular.
Students work alongside faculty in their first two years and take on technical leadership roles in their upper years. By graduation, students will leave with a resume of practical production experience and production knowledge suited for careers in theatre and touring productions, themed entertainment and more.
