Our three-year MFA is both a hub and an incubator of critical, collaborative artistic practice that develops skills of thinking and moving across sites of inquiry. Our boutique program is tailored to the student’s interdisciplinary interests, developing a rich, multimodal practice of investigation.
UB MFA students articulate a secondary area of emphasis that focuses on an individualized topic such as new media, embodiment, queer studies, visual studies, cognitive science, affect studies, somatics, ethnography, history, geography, anthropology, technical theatre and more. We are project and process-based, and to support this ethos, we have inaugurated a new performance laboratory, ChoreoLab, whose mission is to support diverse artists, their creative process and their role within society and culture.
With close faculty mentorship and numerous opportunities to create and show work, MFA students at UB cultivate the knowledge and skills necessary to become the next generation of innovative dance makers, leaders, teaching-artists and artist-scholars.
