Department of Theatre Arts on Acceptd!

The UM Theatre Arts Department offers B.F.A. degrees in

  • Comprehensive Musical Theatre
  • Stage Management
  • Theatre Design
Our programs intend to prepare gifted, emerging creative artists with the experience, training, and craft necessary to enter the world of professional theater, television, and film. A rigorous production schedule of plays, musicals, and new works provides our students incessant hands-on experience translating their classroom and studio work to the stage. In addition, this intensive theatrical training is complemented by the university’s strong liberal arts curriculum and access to the vibrant international community of South Florida.

Your application through Acceptd will only serve as a pre-screen only. ‌Due to the large volume of B.F.A Applicants, we highly recommend that first-year and transfer students complete Acceptd's optional pre-screen. If the faculty recommends your application forward, you will be guaranteed an audition date. Unfortunately, given the competitiveness of the program, if a pre-screen through Acceptd is not submitted, we cannot guarantee a live audition.

*Please do NOT submit your Common Application to the University of Miami until you have received your prescreen decision.

* This is not a requirement in order to obtain an audition appointment. Submitting a prescreen is optional.

*Deadline for Prescreens is December 15, 2023..
