Costume Design at CFA
BU’s Costume Design program aims to develop a complete theatre artist by fostering a passion for theatre, storytelling, design, and collaborative process. There is emphasis on assisting the individual artist to find their own voice in the theatre through both theoretical and practical application of costume design principles. MFA or BFA Costume Design students are encouraged to: critically analyze a wide range of texts, music, history, art, and design; create and interpret visual, conceptual, and emotional responses; and communicate, through clothing, these responses to an audience in support of the actor, the director, and the design team.
