About the Department

The Hunter College Theatre Department offers students the opportunity to study theatre while exploring New York’s vibrant theatre scene. We offer classes in acting, directing, and playwriting and design in addition to theatre history, literature, and theory. We believe that critical thinking and practical skills nourish each other. Our accomplished faculty members bring their professional experience as practitioners and scholars outside the college to the classroom. The Department produces one mainstage and several smaller productions each semester, with students taking part in all areas of performance and production. 

Doctor of Philosophy

The City University of New York offers a PhD program in theatre. See the Graduate Center webpage for a description of the PhD program and the complete list of courses. Students take their courses where they are offered, in any of the branches of CUNY and at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016. All Hunter’s Theatre MA program courses are accepted toward the CUNY PhD.
