Course content

The MA in Theatre Practice is ideal for anyone wishing to further their practical and theoretical knowledge along with advanced research skills. Whether you seek to develop an area of theatre that you have enjoyed in your previous degree, or to tackle new horizons you have not yet had the opportunity to study, during the programme you will pursue a range of practical and theoretical knowledge whilst being taught by leading academics. The MA in Theatre Practice offers students the chance to develop skills and knowledge in Shakespeare, performer training, socially engaged practice or theatre and performance research.

The programme consists of five compulsory modules including a 60 credit dissertation module. The two core practice modules focus on Exeter’s specialist areas which include performer training, applied theatre, inter-and transcultural theatre, Shakespeare and theatre and performance research.

During your first term you will take a compulsory module that studies the internationalisation of performance culture and the adaptation of theatre practices across cultures. This comparative study embraces cultures from around the world, introduces you to the wide experience of other students and asks you to reflect on what matters most to you in contemporary performance.

In term 2 you advance your research skills, reflecting on what it is to do theatrical research today and how to imagine, refine, and present on an area of theatrical practice and research of your choosing. In your final term you will conduct an in-depth research project in form of a dissertation, that can be fully written or partially practice-as-research.

Over the course of the programme you will gain knowledge of new performance skills and edit and produce a digital portfolio of your work.


Some examples of the optional modules are; Voice for the Actor Term; The Actor's Body: Intercultural Theories and Practices; Versioning Shakespeare Term; Theatre and Environment; History of Acting and Restoration Theatre: Culture and Politics

The modules listed here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand
