MFA students engage deeply in creative process as informed by individual backgrounds and coursework in history, theory, literature, movement practice, and repertory. Our three-year residency program gives artists time to delve into MFA core courses as well as an individualized pursuits in dance supported by engaged faculty advisors and visiting artists, faculty and courses in a multitude of other disciplines on campus, and additional resources such as graduate minors or interdisciplinary specializations.
Our community of 15-20 MFA students collaborate with faculty, staff, visiting artists, undergraduates, and each other in Sullivant Hall studios and offices as they develop academically and professionally.
Please see our MFA Checklist [docx] for an example of a planning document that students use to track their course progress to graduation, alongside other university resources, professional staff, and faculty advisors.
