IICSI is launching new MA and PhD graduate programs in Critical Studies in Improvisation, at the University of Guelph!

Our new MA (2 years) and PhD (4 years) programs will appeal to prospective students interested in improvisatory practices, arts-based practices for community change, interdisciplinary approaches, and community engagement. All students will complete coursework exploring core concepts, research methods, and arts-based community engagement, as well as an independent research project. PhD students will also complete two qualifying exams: one focused on critical studies in improvisation, and another in a secondary area of disciplinary expertise. Funding may be available in the form of stipends, teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and internships with community partners.
