Director's Message
Nick Mangano: Director, Professor & Program Director

I am pleased to tell you about an exciting new MFA program in Theatre at Stony Brook Southampton.  We offer an MFA with tracks in Playwriting, Directing, Dramaturgy and Film, and reside within an expanding graduate arts campus just a train ride away from Manhattan.  Southampton Arts also offers graduate programs in Creative Writing and the Visual Arts, and provides an idyllic setting for interdisciplinary collaborations.

Located in one of the most beautiful ocean side towns on the East Coast, Southampton Arts draws upon the rich artistic community of Long Island’s East End, as well as that of Manhattan, where you can also study at our downtown location.  You can train throughout the year, including during our summer Southampton International Theatre Workshops.
