In Performance Studies we seek the knowledge performance reveals about human experience and culture. Our students take part in performance research, combining creative practices and rigorous scholarship, to explore a range of cultural expressions, including rituals, festivals, religious ceremonies, games, parades, storytelling, dress, martial arts, and the mass media. Performance Studies at Texas A&M is unique in its integration of artistic practice in music and theatre with the analytical, interpretive, and creative skills that prepare individuals for diverse careers in and beyond the arts. The Department offers a B.A. in performance studies that integrates music and theatre, and an M.A. in performance studies.
