Costume Design

The concentration in Costume Design provides its students with individualized mentorship through practical experiences in a variety of venues and genres. Our attentive faculty and shop staff teach an extensive curriculum designed to sharpen your aesthetics in character design and to expand your technical knowledge of garment production. Special attention is given to script analysis, research, graphic skills, and collaboration techniques that drive design choices.

Our goal is to prepare you to launch your successful career as a designer, associate and/or assistant designer in Costume Design for the live entertainment industry. To this end we pay close attention to assigning internships with our affiliate ZACH Theatre in Austin, as well as placement in prominent summer stock companies.
