Museum theatre practitioners come from diverse backgrounds and receive training in a large variety of disciplines. Some have studied and worked in theater, education (formal, museum or environmental), a content specialty such as science or history, museum studies, and from many different combinations of academics and experience.
IMTAL is not currently aware of any college/university that grants a degree in museum theatre. (If you know of one, please tell us!) If you are looking for a higher education program to prepare you to work in museum theatre, different programs will meet your needs depending on what you are looking for and ultimately what you want to do.
