"THE DYNAMIC, INTELLECTUAL, AND INTERPERSONAL GENEROSITY BETWEEN FACULTY, STAFF, AND STUDENTS MAKE A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN A UNIVERSITY SETTING WHERE EVERYONE -- AND ALL THAT THEY BRING -- ARE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AS NASCENT PHILOSOPHERS, ART MAKERS, EDUCATORS." - ALEXANDRA T. VAZQUEZ, Director of Graduate Studies
As the oldest program of its kind in the U.S. and a PhD program that is rated #1 by the National Research Council, the M.A. program explores the ways that performance creates meaning and shapes social life. Rather than asking, "What does Performance mean?" we ask, "What does it do?" and "What difference does it make?" PS Postscripts is a first peek into the PS community, a performance collective that is profoundly collaborative, quirky, rich and nurtures a fascinating environment where students are impassioned thinkers, scholars and artists.
