Admission

Your Degree Your Way

Theatre at Miami

Practice what you love most in theatre, explore new interests, and make theatre that makes a difference.

Our liberal arts approach helps you become a smarter and more successful theatre artist, with a strategic edge in the job market. We believe in thriving artists, not starving artists.

Double major, add a minor, study abroad. All are ways for you to make your degree uniquely yours.

To become a major

Step 1: Apply to Miami
Complete the First-Year Common Application or Transfer Application. Indicate THEATRE (FA86) as your intended college major (or the major you wish to transfer into if completing the Transfer Student application).

Step 2: Schedule and complete an audition interview. There are many options available for you including:

  • At one of our admission events
  • Over Zoom
  • During an individual campus visit
  • At a college audition program at the Ohio or Indiana Thespian Festival, the International Thespian Festival, or the Illinois High School Theatre Festival

Or submit materials through our online platform Accept'd.

Schedule Your Audition Interview

What to prepare for your Audition Interview

Step 3: Submit a Theatre Department admission supplement form. Complete this before your audition interview, or as quickly soon after as possible. 

If you are a current Miami student changing majors or relocating from the Regionals, follow steps 2 and 3 above.

Timelines for Scholarship Consideration

Department of Theatre scholarships for incoming students are awarded based on materials presented in the University application, the departmental admissions supplement, and the audition interview.

PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN to those students who complete their interview by March 1. More on scholarships »

The Department may also send forward names of promising students to be designated as College of Creative Arts (CCA) Scholars. This may increase your eligibility for more substantial University scholarships.

The first round of consideration is mid-November, and only students who have completed their audition/interview by this time will be considered.
