MA/MFA Puppetry

The Puppet Arts are a crossroads of many disciplines. Virtually all of the arts and many of the humanities and sciences feed directly into the form that is referred to as Puppetry. The students in The University of Connecticut’s Puppet Arts Program serve as good examples of this wide and varied field. In our graduate program we have had students with undergraduate degrees in English Literature, Music, Acting, Technical Theatre, Graphic Arts, Sculpture, costuming, Political Science and Religion/Philosophy.
