MA in Performance Studies 

The Master’s in Performance Studies at Texas A&M University is built around a multifaceted understanding of performance. Using a wide range of qualitative methods and theoretical frameworks (from dramaturgical analysis to ethnography and phenomenology), our graduate faculty has expertise in the study of religion & spirituality, theater, media & technology, popular music, state affairs, law, diplomacy, martial arts, urbanism, dance, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. They have conducted research in the US, Ghana, Brazil, Japan, Trinidad, and Spain. The unique perspective each of our faculty brings is what makes our MA distinctive when compared to similar programs in the country.

BA in Performance Studies 

Our Bachelor's in Performance Studies provides a foundation in critical reflection, analysis, and creative practice from which students can launch a variety of careers. In their core Performance Studies courses, BA Students are immersed in performance theory, learn the craft of creating live theatrical and musical performance, and cultivate essential research and writing skills to be successful citizens, scholars, and artists in the 21st century.
