The University of California Davis is based in Davis, CA offers a two-year fully funded MFA in Dramatic Art. The M.F.A. is designed to provide a program of rigorous, advanced training and practice that enables mid-career artists to explore and expand skills in order to develop artistically and professionally. With the focus firmly on interdisciplinary practice, the M.F.A. offers artists the opportunity to create new dimensions of classical and contemporary performance. MFA is funded through Teaching Assistantships and on some occasions Associate Instructors. A 50% TAship carries a 20-hour a week workload; a 25% TA-ship carries a 10-hour a week workload. Therefore, it is important to manage time and energy levels responsibly.
