Other Colleges
« on: Aug 21, 2007, 05:16 pm »
So I know that many people talk a lot about Webster, DePaul, and NCSA. I am in love with all three and would love to go to them. I am a senior in HS and needing to apply very soon. I am seeing that these three cost a pretty penny and I am not sure that I could pay off loans after college. What other colleges are up there with these three, but might be less expensive? I am not being cheap here. I enjoy having the best in theater(i.e. lighting, rigging, sound), so I do not want a small school where I could not find this. I want to be trained very well and leave college after 4 years knowing that my money was spent wisely. That I got the best education I could get and was trained in or around the best equipment that there is. I know that I will not always have "the best of the best", but being trained on or near it would be nice. If anyone could give me some colleges to look into then I would be very thankful. Thank you for all you time!
~pay it forward~

Have you looked into your state schools to see if any of them have a strong theater department? Are you looking for a well rounded tech/design education with SM experience and training or do you want to be in an specifically SM program. Are you looking at a double major in a non-theater related field? Are you looking for a conservatory program or a liberal arts based education BA or BFA?

I live in Knoxville, TN. The University of Tennessee has a campus here, but I do not feel it has that great of a theater program. I am looking to go out of state. I think a tech/design along with SM would be more beneficial to me. After all, a SM is suppose to be able to do it all. I am looking to get a BFA and I would stop with that. I do not feel a MFA would be worth the cost for me. As for conservatory vs. liberal arts, I am not that sure on which. I do not want a double major, at this point at least.

Im pretty much in the same boat you are...
check out Emmerson, Penn State, CalArts, Cornish, North Eastern, and North Western if your looking for a Stage management major.

NCSA is a state school, and has in-state as well as out-of-state tuition rates.

To get in-state tuition you have to move to NC for a full year before enrolling (or re-enrolling).  But it's been done before...
