Lighting Design

The area of lighting design is centered around a core of courses appropriate to the training of aesthetically sensitive, technically profi cient lighting artists for all phases of the theatre.

Course work focuses on functional, expressive, and compositional aspects of light supported by special skill courses in rendering techniques, drafting (including computer-aided paper-work techniques), projection aesthetics, and related technologies.

Special needs of each student will be approached through individualized instruction and supervised design experiences in variety of production styles and performance spaces on and off campus.
