Doctoral Collegium and Maintaining Matriculation

Doctoral Collegium and Maintaining Matriculation

The PERFORMING ARTS RESEARCH COLLEGIUM includes all doctoral students and faculty engaged in performing arts research.

Doctoral students who are taking other credit-bearing course work will also register for the 0 credit section of MPAP Doctoral Collegium – MPAIA-GE 3401.

Doctoral students who are finished with course work and are within the maximum allowable matriculation period (eight years for students who entered full-time, and ten years for students who entered part-time) are required to maintain matriculation by registering for MAINT-GE 4747 each semester (exclusive of summers) when not enrolled for credit bearing course work. Those students will also register for the 0 credit section of MPAP Doctoral Collegium – MPAIA-GE 3401.

Doctoral students who are finished with course work and are beyond the maximum allowable matriculation period (students who entered full-time in the Fall 2009 or earlier, and students who entered part-time in the Fall of 2007 or earlier) are required to maintain matriculation by registering for Doctoral Advisement DCADV-GE 3400, 1 credit, during any semester (exclusive of summers) when not enrolled for credit bearing course work. Those students will also register for the 0 credit section of MPAP Doctoral Collegium – MPAIA-GE 3401.

Class meets on the first Friday of each month during the academic year from 5:30-8PM. Topic proposals by current students are featured and are published on the course NYU Classes site for general review prior to each class meeting. Each proposal submitted for review must be approved by the student’s Program Director. It is not necessary to have a Dissertation Chair prior to presenting the Topic, however, if one has already been secured, the Chair should also provide notice of approval.

Students who are not local or who miss any class session will maintain participation by posting responses to the Topic Reviews posted on the NYU Classes Site.
