In this program, students will continue developing other basic skills, including construction, shop practices, and rendering techniques, while mastering necessary degree-appropriate hand skills in makeup techniques and wig building and styling. The program offers design and conceptual experience, both in the studio and in actual production work. Webster is one of the few undergraduate institutions that requires that all of the productions be designed by students; faculty input on production work is strictly advisory. This practice allows students to acquire production experience necessary for the degree and provides representative samples for their portfolio.
