Special Instructions to Applicants
Please submit the following with your online application:
The Department of Theatre Arts is an instructional and research department within the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). We are committed to a liberal arts approach to theatre education, maintaining high standards both in academic and creative practices. We serve students with a wide range of needs and interests, training them to create theatre into the future, as educators, audience members, and/or professional practitioners.
In our department, theory and practice are mutually reinforcing. Students will find their academic studies illuminated by their participation in theatrical productions. We pursue the study of the histories and literature of theatre, from a wide variety of cultures and times, as cultural formations that can inform and advance artistic practice. We study established theories and practices, while remaining equally committed to innovation and new interpretations of theatre.
We encourage excellence, both as individuals and as a team. Through the mastery of skills and techniques, students may advance their own creative ideas, while working as collaborators with others to create an outcome that exceeds the vision of any one person. Our curriculum emphasizes critical thinking, team problem-solving, and creative expression in various media. We value both process and results. We learn from challenges in order to build lifelong habits of persistence and innovation.
The purpose of this position is to build, alter, pattern, and modify garments for theatre productions; train student workers; maintain costume shop supplies; and track the costume shop budget. This non-tenure track faculty position provides instruction to students in costume techniques, recovering from mistakes, and preparing for professional costume careers.
The person in this position will need to work some non-standard hours including evenings and weekends.
