College Factual, a website that ranks 4-year colleges and universities based on compiled data, rated Montclair State University the best for Drama and Theatre Arts in the state of New Jersey.
The website compiles a wide range of data to calculate its findings, focusing more on outcomes for students post-graduation rather than the ratio of students accepted versus the number of applied, as most college ranking systems do. College Factual takes into account post-graduate income, affordability, and availability of on-campus resources.
Montclair State came out on top because of its state of the art facilities, accomplished professional faculty, and numerous production opportunities. With our ambitious season that includes three fully staged musicals, three fully produced straight plays, three dance concerts, along with various studio and workshop presentations, students get the performance experience comparable to a professional regional company while receiving a liberal arts-education and rigorous artistic training.
