What is Acting at WVU like?
The Master of Fine Arts in Acting at WVU is an intensive three-year course of study.
The School of Theatre and Dance accepts a limited number of students to the program once every three years. The small class size promotes a high level of individual attention and creates an intimate and strong ensemble. We are a process-oriented program, providing an environment conducive to risk-taking and experimentation.
The MFA acting students are the core of the casting pool for five to six main stage productions as well as up to ten workshop and second-stage productions per year. A typical MFA student will perform in as many as six to eight main stage and multiple workshop productions in their three years at WVU.
Each graduate program sets their own term of admission and application deadline. Applicants can only apply for admission for the term displayed below. Any questions regarding the application deadline should be directed to the graduate program representative.
