Doctoral Collegium and Maintaining Matriculation

While taking coursework, students must register for the Performing Arts Research Collegium (MPAIA-GE 3401 - 0 credits). Once coursework has been completed (typically in year 3 for full-time students) and until graduation, students must register for the 1-credit section of the Collegium (MPAIA-GE 3400) in order to maintain matriculation.

The Performing Arts Research Collegium meets on the first Friday of each month during the fall and spring semesters. It is a forum where students present their work in progress, notably their topic proposals, and discuss research problems and procedural issues with their peers. They also attend invited talks of interest to the department’s doctoral community. All students are expected to attend and actively participate in Collegium, either in person or online through the course’s NYU Classes page.
