Plan of Study

Production Assignments

Each year, students are given assignments as director for School of Drama productions. In the first- and second-year, students may be given an assignment as assistant director at Yale Repertory Theatre or Yale School of Drama.

Elective Requirement

Directors are required to take one term-length elective course over three years and are encouraged to take more as their schedules permit. Courses may be selected from Acting, Design, Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism, Playwriting, Theater Management, and other departments within Yale School of Drama, subject to approval by the chair of Directing. Where course scheduling permits, students may propose to fulfill the elective requirement by enrolling in a course elsewhere within the University.
