A.R.T. Institute class of 2018

The A.R.T. Institute at Harvard University

The A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training is not currently accepting applicants and will be taking a three-year hiatus starting in August 2018 in order to evaluate the program and explore new models of theater training.

The A.R.T. Institute was established in 1987 by the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) as a training ground for the professional American theater. It is a two-year, graduate training program for theater professionals, operated in association with the Moscow Art Theater School (MXAT). The wide range of courses given by the international faculty offers students unique preparation for the multi-faceted demands of the professional theater.

Each year, approximately twenty-three carefully selected students are admitted for a full-time, two-year program of graduate study in acting, dramaturgy, or voice pedagogy. The Institute accepts inquisitive student artists, whose talent, enthusiasm, intelligence, and cultural curiosity can pioneer and lead the theater of the future. Upon successful completion of the academic requirements for the program, students will be awarded a Master of Liberal Arts Degree in Extension Studies from the faculty of the Harvard Extension School and the faculty of the American Repertory Theater Institute for Advanced Theater Training at Harvard University.
