PhD Theatre and Performance Studies




Program News

This past summer, PhD candidates LaRonika Thomas and Adam Nixon attended the 2017 Northwestern University Summer Institute in Performance Studies. Participants were encouraged to engage in the on-going question: how can improvisation, narrative, and beauty merge to embody moments of freedom and justice? 

University of Maryland (UMD) alumni John Ford ‘64 and Sandra Poster ‘64 met during their undergraduate years in the UMD Theatre program, then known as Speech & Dramatic Arts. They went on to build careers in speech and communications, and they are longtime patrons of the arts.
