Committee on Theater and Performance Studies

Positioned at the heart of a world-renowned academic institution and housed in a state-of-the-art presenting facility, the Committee on Theater and Performance Studies (TAPS) offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree, a joint Ph.D. program, a TAPS-focused Master of Arts Program in the Humanities, and wide-ranging curricular and production opportunities.

The TAPS program – including a new and expanding dance program – supports a broad array of expressive forms, encouraging experimentation, risk-taking, imaginative thinking and deep knowledge-building. TAPS students gain fluency in devising artistic work and engaging it critically. TAPS graduates put their skills to work in a wide variety of artistic, professional and academic environments, and build on their training to address and animate the state of performance in a rapidly-changing world.
