Graduate Programs

The Master’s Program in Theater and Performance Studies

The Master’s Program in Theater and Performance Studies at Washington University in St. Louis is one of the strongest programs of its kind. We offer students rigorous scholarly training, opportunities to meet and work with visiting scholars and artists, and support in developing their own independent research projects—all within a collegial, supportive environment that prizes critical thinking and creative practice.

Our faculty has been recognized with numerous accolades for both their artistic and their scholarly work, and the small size of each admitted class allows for individual attention and one-on-one mentorship. We routinely place our graduates in top Ph.D. programs in the field.
