The PhD program in Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Georgia is pleased to announce a special Graduate School Research Assistantship (GSRA) available for an incoming doctoral student in Fall 2018. The UGA Graduate School will provide an enhanced stipend during the first and fourth years of study, and the department will support the recipient with an assistantship during the second and third years. All assistantships include a tuition waiver and entail a moderate work commitment related to the field of study.

Over the four years of support, the total value of this award will be at least $111,924 including in-state tuition or $175,876 including out-of-state tuition. The stipend itself during years 1 and 4 is $24,258 per year; during years 2 and 3, at least $14,296 per year (based on figures for the 2017-18 academic year). The assistantship does not include fees, currently $1,133 per semester. 

Our doctoral program is designed to promote the study of theatre and performance in all media. This is a scholarly, research degree that encourages the interaction of scholarly work with creative practice. Faculty specialties include spectator response theory, postcolonial theatre, community-based performance, race and performance, Asian theatre, film history and theory, digital performance, and performance philosophy. 

We are looking for applicants who have a strong creative background; the ability to research, analyze and write; an MA or MFA degree in theatre or a closely related discipline; two examples of scholarly writing; and strong scores on the verbal and writing components of the GRE exam.
