Undergraduate Catalog

Set apart by our small class sizes and numerous technical and design possibilities, our hands-on program stands out from the competition. Opportunities are abundant for designers and technicians at Frostburg State University.

An interview and portfolio presentation is required for entrance into the track. We welcome those interested in any or all aspects of Costume, Lighting, Scenic and Sound Design and Technical work as well as Stage Management!

The Design and Technology Track is an undergraduate only program, as such  students are not competing with graduate designers for assignments. This allows our students to build impressive portfolios. Great attention is paid to transitioning students to the professional world.

When possible, additional activities such as annual visits to USITT (United States Institute for Theatre Technology) annual conference, SETC (South Eastern Theatre Conference), and  KCACTF (Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival) offer Design-Tech students opportunities to find internships and employment in the professional theatre.

The Design and Technology Track requires 51 semester hours of credit. 30 hours are dedicated to the departmental core curriculum, 18 hours are required in the Acting Track and 3 hours are required outside of the department.

The Theatre major experience at Frostburg State University is rigorous, intense and balanced. Both artistic development and academic excellence are significant and equally supported goals within the program.


Portfolio Review

All students in the Design and Technology Track are assessed via Portfolio Reviews. Portfolio Reviews are designed to help students prepare to achieve positions in the professional technical theatre industry or to attain graduate assistantships.
