Admission, Auditions & Interviews

The Fordham Theatre Program is a B.A. that offers four pre-professional tracks for Theatre majors: Performance, Design & Production, Playwriting, and Directing. On the graduate level, we offer an MFA in Playwriting.

Entrance into all tracks and the MFA is highly competitive. In addition to the University application (Fordham College at Lincoln Center for undergraduates and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences for the MFA), the Theatre Program requires additional information from prospective students. Deadlines

Theatre Program applicants must apply to the University by November 1, 2014. Late applications will continue to be accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the admissions department directly. In addition, applicants must register for a Theatre Program audition or interview by December 15, 2014.
