drewboy doesn't lie, the MFA is really god in this field.

However for Theatrical Production/Design undergrad, I would say Ithaca College (though I'm biased and attend there for Musical Theatre), because I've been to shows at a ton of schools, and regardless of the talent on stage, Ithaca is the one that always impresses me the most technically.

The directing teacher here at IC got her MFA at Syracuse University, so I would also look to see if they have an undergrad as well.

I am currently a directing major at U of M. It's a fantastic program and I'm loving it. If you have any questions feel free to PM me!
