Adult Programs

SMTD provides a series of adult programs that take place during the summer, and range from 3 to 7 day intensives. These programs sometimes require an audition for admittance, and are specifically designed for adults aged 18 and older that are working towards promoting their skills in a focused career area. These programs may be taken for professional development enrichment without college credit, or for graduate credit (NCFD).
