Job Qualifications

Lighting Designer


Northern Illinois University is currently interviewing MFA Candidates for the 2017-1018 School year. Located in DeKalb, IL, NIU is only an hour from Chicago, making it easily accessible. Our exciting season includes 7 Mainstage and 7 Studio productions, including two fully produced Dance concerts. Our Lighting Design students design every semester, and coursework includes Rendering Techniques, Computer Pre-visualization, Vectorworks, AutoCAD, Rigging, and Portfolio Development.

MFA Candidates receive a stipend and a full tuition waver for all three years of the program. Small class sizes and a professional, working faculty make for an intensive and focused learning environment. In the spring of 2018 the newly renovated Stevens Building will reopen, giving us access to four different performance venues, including a new two-story black box theatre.

For more information, please contact Brandon Wardell, Lighting Director.
