What classes do I need to prepare myself for your program? Are there any prerequisites to be considered?
The strongest applicants will have an equally strong background in both theatre and psychology. However, many candidates are accepted with a stronger background in one area. During the application process, we always look at the entire person: academic background, work/performance experience, essay, recommendations, audition, and interview. In that the Drama Therapy Program requires advanced courses in psychology during your matriculation, we ask that all accepted students make sure to complete undergraduate psychology courses in Abnormal and/or Developmental Psych before they begin their graduate study. Additionally, it is strongly recommended to read some of the major works of literature that comprise the drama therapy body of knowledge, including studies of drama therapy, psychology, and theatre theory.
