About the interview
An interview is required to be considered for admission. Interviews must be pre-scheduled using our online reservation system. In-person interviews are held on campus in Chicago and in select regional locations. If an in-person interview cannot be scheduled, phone and Skype interviews are also available.
You will interview one-on-one with a faculty member from the department to which you are applying. We believe that during the
interview, the questions you have for us are as important as the
questions we have for you. There is no fixed format or schedule of
questions for the interview, so you will be evaluated as an individual
by an individual. The faculty member who conducts the interview will be
interested in your theatre experiences, academic record, personal
achievements, extracurricular activities and plans for your artistic
future (especially as they relate to dramaturgy and theatrical criticism.) The best preparation for the interview is to be curious; come
with plenty of questions about courses, instructors, student life and anything else you would like to discuss.
