  1. I didn't see any forums for performance studies PhD programs beginning in Fall 2018.... probably because I'm the only one overly excited to be posting this early! I'm applying to quite a few schools. Columbia and Northwestern are my top picks. Just hoping to find a few other friends who might want to drive themselves nuts with me on this forum for the next twelve months! Ha! I'd love to know where else you are all applying.
  2. Hi there! I'm new to this site so hopefully I'm doing this right... I'm hoping to apply to some Directing MFA's this fall with a fall 2019 admission. It has been strongly suggested to me that I reach out to the department heads to introduce myself and ask them questions about their programs. But I'm not quite sure what I should ask other than "what is so special about your program?" Any suggestions on what type of questions are good to ask, good vocabulary to use, ways to make myself look good, etc. This is my first time applying to grad school ever, so I am really learning as I go. I have a few schools picked out and have started gathering the application materials, but I feel like this is an important step I shouldn't miss. Thanks for the help!
  3. Hi guys, I'm from Taiwan and applying to MFA Dramaturgy programs (Columbia, Yale, UMass Amherst) and a few MA Theatre programs (CUNY Hunter College/dramaturgy concentration, U of Pitts, U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, SUNY Binghamton) for 2018 fall admission. I just got two invitations for interview from Columbia and UMass today (Jan. 30, GMT+8) and have no idea about what to notice or prepare for interview. The related posts are quite few. Anyone has advice or experience to share? Please also feel free to exchange info and opinions about dramaturgy programs, theatre & performance studies programs (especially MAs), etc. in this thread! Thanks :)
  4. So all of the forums and columns I have found has been on what it is like to go back to school for law, med, or a social science none of them have focused on art. Anyone have any perspective on attending the same department of graduate program after working in the same field of study for a lengthy period of time?
  5. Hi, all. This is my first post here, but this forum has been greatly helpful to me in my grad school search so thank you so much! But I digress... I'm a recent graduate with a BA in English Literature from a small but respectable private university in Indiana, and I'm taking a gap year now before applying to PhD programs. My interests are in Gender and Sexuality and others forms of media such as Film and Theatre. I'm also interested in Post-1900s American literature, although it isn't my primary focus. I'm not sure how all to go about wording this in my personal statement to programs, and I was also curious about the importance of specifying a time period. Would it benefit me to include my interest in Post-1900s American literature along with my primary interests (or as one of my primary interest)? Would all of that be too much to detail in a personal statement? (Note: My 24-page senior thesis, which I plan to use for applications, is on queer theory and analysis of a French queer film, if that info is useful at all.) I was also curious if anyone has programs they think could align with my interests. I have a list of 11 schools so far that I'm considering applying to, but I'd love to hear suggestions and broaden that list. (Preferably schools that don't require the GRE Subject Test in Literature because I know I haven't read enough classic literature to get high scores on that and would rather not bother.) Let me know in the comments if you need any additional information from me. Thank you in advance!
  6. "How to direct a play and not lose your mind" This is a must read for theatre director BUT ALSO if you are a stage director who has been rejected from graduate school this book may be for you. Tools to help you build your resume now- without the MFA. With tips like where to find the job, how to interview, get internships and handle problems in your production. A short manual with personal stories and honest help from a working director supported by directing who was rejected. $ 2.99 on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DHOAA5K?vs=1
  7. Anybody in the waiting process of hearing back from universities for the MFA Costume Design? Which schools are you considering and whose program stands out? Or just any comments about an MFA in Costume Design
  8. Who has applied? Where? Which schools do you think have the best program? Did you participate in U/RTA? Are you participating at SETC on March 4? Anything related to the MFA o Costume Design or within the Department of Theatre. Let the conversation begin!!
  9. ive applied for 9 programs but i really dont know where i stand. i am 35, with bushels of experience making work, performing, and teaching. my recs and statements are bold and strong. i worry about my antique undergrad GPA (3.24) and my 5 year old unpracticed-for GRE score (560/780/4.5). who do i even think i am applying for these schools, for applying to Brown and Stanford and UCLA and Northwestern and Berkeley.... but sometimes i think i am definitely going to get it. i've done so much, i've proven myself! essentially, i am lost. i have no clue. anybody else? any insight? other worries or relaxing?
  10. I graduated from the University of Georgia in May with a degree in Linguistics/Theatre. Last year, I tried to apply for speech pathology without any prerequisites (except linguistics courses) and got rejected from all seven schools I applied to >.< Now, I'm taking prereqs through the online program at Longwood, and my post-bac GPA is 3.8-3.9ish. By the end of the spring, I'll have courses in phonology, syntax, semantics, and morphology (through my Bachelor's degree) as well as Intro to CSD, Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing, Language Development, Intro to Audiology, Language Disorders, Speech Science, and Neurology of Communication. I'm trying again this time around, and my list can be seen in my signature (I'm only applying to one that I applied to last year). My stats can also be found there. (My AW score on the GRE was 4.5, but I got a 5.5 when I took it last year. Do they combine scores?) Besides academics, I had a summer internship at a surgical implantable company where I dealt with insurance claims and HIPAA, and now I work as a support companion with two women with autism who live in their own homes (mostly behavioral stuff, and I've dealt with a lot of state paperwork and ISPs). In my essays, I mention that during my full-time internship I was also taking 9 hours of classes. I'm getting recommendations from an online SLP professor I had twice (who also practices), a theatre professor I know really well and basically took a grad level class with (and who is the head of the department), a linguistics TA I've had for two classes as well as been in a class with him as a student, and my coordinator for my companion job (one of the teachers couldn't meet the CSDCAS deadline in time...) Do you think eleven schools is enough? (I'm a little gun-shy after last time.) Did I pick enough "safe" ones? Does anyone have experience applying to and being accepted/rejected from my schools? Anything to ease this wait would be wonderful!
