About the course

The MA in Theatre Making at Kent offers an opportunity to develop advanced knowledge of practices, traditions and professional contexts of theatre making through academic engagement, practice-based learning, individual supervision and professional study.

This MA is intended for graduates from theatre and performing arts degrees and other subjects as well as emerging theatre artists who want to further pursue their experimentation with a range of advanced theatre-making practices.

On this programme, you will acquire skills in a range of approaches to making performance, drawing on techniques from directing, devising, ensemble performance and performance art, in order to develop your own individual and/or company practice.

Student Profile(s)

Russell Bolam

My drama degree at Kent provided training in rigorous academic study and intensive practical application, which have proven to be essential grounding for my career as a theatre director.

The course is designed to cultivate and provoke interests and passions within the field and to guide you towards a position and context in the professional world. Quite simply if not for the degree, the staff, and the Drama Society at Kent, I would not be a theatre director today or have felt sufficiently equipped with the knowledge and starting skills to enter the theatre profession. The degree is brilliantly broad and eclectic, the staff are inspiring and inspired and the opportunities on campus among peers to create work and forge lifelong collaborative relationships are innumerable.
