Graduate Program: Theatre and Performance Studies
Department's Graduate Student Handbook
This booklet provides an outline of procedures, requirements,
and suggestions for completing both the Ph.D. and M.A. degree in
Theatre and Performance Studies at Tufts University.
Suggestions for preparing for the comprehensive exams,
fulfilling language requirements, and approaching research
papers are also included in the department's handbook. These
suggestions are based on the past experiences of graduate
students in the Department, and are recommendations merely, not
policy. It is important to remember that while this booklet
encompasses a great deal of information, it cannot answer every
question. Students are encouraged to approach either their
graduate mentor or advisor with more specific inquiries.
Graduate School's Student Handbook
Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the
contents of the
Graduate School's Handbook issued by the
Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. The Department assumes
that each student will be responsible for overseeing his or her
own progress through the program, and for ensuring that
requirements are met in a timely fashion.
