Students in the department’s graduate program are advised by their area head or in the case of design, by the appropriate design faculty member. All students are reviewed each semester by their mentors to discuss progress and registrations. This is done formally within the design area during Profile Review.

The department administrators register all graduate students for their courses.

Leah Dempsey, TFMA’s Assistant Director for Administration, handles all financial aid paperwork, including assistantships, and is the administrative liaison between the theater graduate students and Temple University’s Graduate School.
