A major part of the MA program here at Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio, is directing training and directing opportunities. We plan to offer 6 assistantships this upcoming fall of 2017.
The Masters of Performance, Theatre and Practice is an opportunity for students to integrate their understanding of scholarship and practice as they are determining where they will fit into the theatre professionally or if they will pursue an MFA or PhD degree. Students can complete either a research thesis or a creative portfolio. See more information at our website.
Graduate assistantships include a full tuition waiver and a stipend for working in the department as teaching assistants, graders, production support, and research assistants. Along with the important work of assistantships, we also value professional development and frequently support students to attend conferences and workshops.
We welcome students with a variety of interests in pursuing high level research and crafting their own independent research or creative project as they discover how they fit into our discipline and the world. Students from liberal arts institutions thrive in our small program that values the educational process, critical pedagogy, and provides funding for the entire degree program (including summer stipends).
Our preferred deadline for applications for Graduate Assistantships is February 1, 2018, but we will continue reviewing applications until March 1, 2018.
