The interdisciplinary Master in Theater at Bern University of the Arts HKB is a specialised degree for theatre professionals from a wide range of disciplines. It leads to a Master’s Degree in Theater (specialisation Expanded Theater) over the course of three semesters (90 ECTS). In this programme artists from different performance disciplines work and learn together: actors, dancers, performers, puppetry performers and others.

The Master in Theater is a laboratory in which different theatre practices are examined and researched. The students deal with an advanced understanding of theater that goes beyond the borders of any particular discipline. This not only applies to contemporary forms of theatre performance but also to the development and implementation of new visions.

Students are coached by a team of lecturers at Bern University of the Arts as well as by renowned guest lecturers.

The Master in Theater at the HKB is part of the Master-Campus-Theater-CH, which is offered in cooperation with the other Swiss theatre academies (Zurich University of the Arts, Accademia Teatro Dimitri Verscio and La Manufacture Lausanne).

It is a central concern of the master programme that students maintain a close connection to professional practice throughout. In order to allow the necessary flexibility and time we offer the option of part-time study for up to five semesters.

Studying Linguistics and Literary Studies in Brussels

Linguistics and literary studies are among the most fascinating studies, especially in a city like Brussels where more languages are spoken than anywhere else in Flanders, Belgium or Europe. A Master’s student in linguistics and literary Studies gets access to other languages and cultures which opens up new horizons of understanding. Our multilingual Master's programme prepares students for a globalized labour market where multilingualism is increasingly becoming a necessity. The internationally oriented city of Brussels is the perfect location to personally experience the diverse aspects of multilingualism and multiculturalism.

6 Languages to choose from

Our Master’s programme offers you the unique possibility to take courses in linguistics and literary studies in up to six different languages and to specialise in one specific language-related scientific discipline and in one or two specific languages.

The programme of the Multilingual Master contains courses in the following languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. The programme is built up of three components: the required courses, the choice for one language or two languages, and a multilingual profile.

Curriculum

Required courses (24 ECTS)

There are two required study components: the Master’s thesis (20 ECTS) in one of the chosen languages, and an English taught course in Research Methodology (Linguistics or Literary Studies, 4 ECTS).

One language (18 ECTS) or two languages (24 ECTS)

Depending on your Bachelor’s or undergraduate degree, you will be able to specialise in one language (18 ECTS or 3 courses) or in two languages (twice 12 ECTS or twice 2 courses).

The value of research

Our Master's programme offers you the possibility to conduct independent and creative research on a linguistic or literary topic of your choice in a stimulating multilingual andurban environment. Your research activities will be supervised by an internationally renowned expert in his or her field.

Under the umbrella of "the experiment" it groups research on texts and aesthetics which in a boundary-crossing manner explores the possibilities to represent and stage reality. The different artistic media (literature, theater, film, etc.) in this research are considered laboratories for a reflection on the relationship between reality and the imagination.

Application requirements

Applicants are eligible for the programme if they have a min. 180ECTS bachelor in the field of linguistics and literary studies. .

Additionally, in order to be admitted, you need to be proficient in English.

Art, Media and Society is a renewed, fully English-taught Master's specialization within the Master's program Culture Studies.

The Master’s specialization in Art, Media and Society focuses on the transformations that cultural products undergo as a result of digitalization and globalization. In this program you will analyze how digital cultural products and artefacts critically reflect societal issues, such as the financial crisis, the rise of populism or the ‘tyranny of intimacy’ of social media. Furthermore, you will investigate the public impact of activities carried out by a range of different authors and artists. You will use theories and analytical tools to understand what is at stake here. Central questions are: How can art reshape the public sphere? What are new dimensions of information in the current public sphere?

In this Master’s program, you study digital cultural products and artefacts in contemporary society: phenomena of high and mass culture as well as fashion and advertising, narrative forms of expression such as journalism and personal blogging, as well as literature and visual art focusing on varied purposes: to articulate human rights, to challenge neoliberal development, and to forge alternative local and transnational solidarities. You investigate how information circulates in various contexts, what the social, political and ethical implications are of cultural products, and how roles of producing and consuming these products are negotiated.

In addition, you study theories about the way cultural products and artefacts are experienced and responded to. You practice and further develop your ability to communicate your knowledge and to define, formulate, develop and implement projects. The purpose of the Master’s specialization in Art, Media and Society is to educate professionals with clear profiles.
