NOTE:      This model is based on a student coming into the program with a solid background in theatre history and an MA (and thus transferring up to 30 credits) and receiving a Graduate Center Fellowship (GCF).  Students without Master’s degree will need to take 60 credits, which may extend their time to degree.
