Committee on Theater & Performance Studies PhD Program
The Committee on TAPS is committed to preparing its students to succeed as teachers. Students in the joint PhD program fulfill the teaching requirements of their entry department. In conjunction with those requirements and in consultation with the directors of graduate studies in the entry department and TAPS, students are expected to teach two quarters of courses related to TAPS. This could take the form of a teaching assistantship or an instructorship for a TAPS-related course in the entry department or teaching a section in the TAPS core. Two annotated syllabi for courses in Theater and Performance Studies—generally, one undergraduate and one graduate—will form part of each student’s PhD exam materials.
