MFA, Musical Theatre - Connections

San Diego is the heart of musical theatre on the West Coast. With over 150 stages located here – including two Tony Award-winning theatres – upon graduating each student enters into a large network of theatre professionals. In fact, San Diego has produced and sent more shows to Broadway than any other city in America.

During the summer, each student chooses an internship experience working on or off stage at theaters across the United States.  These experiences are tailored to strengths and goals of our students.


Our alumni network is wide and strong; our graduates work on both coasts and in every corner of the US as well as internationally from Singapore to Denmark.
