The Department of Performance Studies at Texas A&M University has a thriving Master of Arts program in Performance Studies. We emphasize the ethnographic study of vernacular culture. Our faculty has strengths in Africana studies, dance and ritual studies, ethnomusicology, folklore, performance ethnography, popular music studies, religious studies, theatre and media studies, and women’s studies.

We believe our program is especially suited to students who want to increase their understanding of the theories and methods of performance studies before taking up professional careers or starting top-tier PhD programs. Our current MA students are presenting papers at national conferences, working on an NSF-funded project to use performance as research to interrogate the effects of gender in STEM research and pedagogy, and conducting ethnographic and archival research in support of their MA thesis projects.

We have stipends and tuition remission available for qualified applicants. Applications will be accepted until we reach our stipend quota; for best consideration, please apply by February 15, 2012.

Information on the application process, courses, and the degree plan can be found at

Please contact Dr. Kirsten Pullen, Director of Graduate Studies ( <>) with any questions.
