For MA/MFA in Puppet Arts graduate program within the Department of Dramatic Arts, you must be admitted both by the department’s graduate admissions committee and by the admissions office of the graduate school. Occasionally very talented applicants are not admitted if their undergraduate grades do not meet minimum graduate admissions standards.
Your first step is to schedule an audition/interview with Professor Bart Roccoberton Jr., Director of Puppet Arts Program. You can reach the Puppet Arts Department at (860) 486-4568 or Email: Elizabeth.Acosta@uconn.edu with your name, description of your interest in Puppet Arts, your address and phone number.
If your application is successful with the department admissions committee, then you can submit your formal UConn application (including fee) plus official transcripts and (where applicable) TOEFL scores to the University of Connecticut Graduate School. GRE test scores are not required.
This procedure helps you in two ways. First, it prevents unnecessary paperwork, and second, it will save you the cost of the application fee in case the department does not extend and invitation to join the MFA training program.
Again, to schedule an audition/interview appointment with the Puppet Arts Department at (860) 486-4568 or Email: Elizabeth.Acosta@uconn.edu with your name, description of your interest in Puppet Arts, your address and phone number.
