Program description

Theatre MA

Our MA Theatre course allows you to study at your own pace through online learning, so you can pursue your passion for theatre and develop industry connections around your existing commitments.

You’ll actively engage with fundamental principles and explore the rich heritage of theatre from a critical, historical and theoretical perspective. You’ll gain an understanding of theatrical practices and develop your ability to evaluate significant historical, political, social and ethical developments in theatre.

Our broad range of modules incorporates topics such as The Background to Theatre, The Greeks, Shakespeare, Naturalism and the Actor, Modern Theatre, Global Theatres and Music and Dance in Theatre. You’ll also complete an Independent Research Project that will allow you to specialise in an area of particular interest to you, and you will complete a Professional Development Portfolio relevant to your career path.

Admission requirements

Applicants should hold a 2:2 UK honours degree (or a recognised equivalent international qualification) in a Theatre-related subject and have previous engagement with drama, theatre and performance.

English language requirements

IELTS Academic: You should have a score of 6.5 overall including 6.0 in each category.
