About

The PhD program in Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Pittsburgh prioritizes the integration of scholarship with teaching and artistic practice in order to prepare students to be competitive candidates for academic positions at a variety of institutions, post-doctoral research opportunities, and employment sectors beyond academia.

Overview

About the program

In line with the department’s intellectual vision, the Theatre and Performance Studies program at the University of Pittsburgh integrates theory and practice and focuses on underrepresented groups and areas of research, including migration, disability studies, race, gender, sexuality, religion, and transnationalism, across historical, historiographical, literary, performance, and practice-based research methodologies.

Mentored by faculty, each student develops their pedagogy through scaffolded teaching opportunities. These experiences allow students to acquire and practice pedagogical skills in smaller practice-based classes as well as larger lecture and discussion courses in theatre history, performance studies, and script analysis for majors and non-major

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Theories of Theatre and Drama: Activism and Performance
  • Advance Theory and Methodology: Critical Disability Studies
  • World Theatre: 1640-1890
