Content of the programme

The Master of Theatre contains acting, the interpretation of literature, theatric history and the academic study of theatre. Thus, you combine your personal skills and talent with academia. Theoretical subjects may be Drama, play analysis, music therapy, performing arts and literature.

You will learn in detail about famous theatre writers and the different epochs which influence the plays. Pieces of Shakespeare will also be a part of your studies in subjects like modern theatres. However, you will compare modern and classic pieces and try to interpret them in your own way.

Many universities and colleges have also an emphasis on teaching you how to write a play and stage it professionally during your Masters study.
