In addition, the design curriculum is augmented by a wide-variety of courses that may include budgeting, crafts, and design history. The TFT Design/Production Emphasis is a rigorous program that prepares emerging artists for a professional career in the entertainment industry, which includes daytime classes and evening productions. Stage management courses are offered annually, although no specific emphasis is listed. Design emphasis classes require instructor approval for enrollment.
