About Production Units

Students earn production units through supervised experience in the practical application of theatrical and film production techniques. The production unit series of courses (TFDP 170-175) provides instruction in acting, designing, management, directing, dramaturgy, and crew skills under the supervision of faculty/guest instructors and production staff, culminating in a fully realized theatre or film production.

Production units are required for each of TFDP's major tracks. Contact your Academic Advisor or click here to review how many production units are needed to graduate.
