The University of Minnesota offers a unique graduate program drawing from the varied research expertise of its core faculty. Together, the faculty is committed to the study of theatre and performance as practices of social, cultural, and political consequence. The department's work in theatre historiography and performance criticism examines the stakes of acts of representation, movement, and meaning-production both within and without the discipline of theatre. The curriculum of this program trains students to be rigorous scholars and expert teachers of theatre and performance studies at the college level.
