The two-year M.A. program offers students the opportunity to pursue theatre studies through coursework, a one-year graduate theatre studies reading competency examination and an M.A. thesis project. Students are expected to give primary attention to an area of expertise of their choice while training in the broader theoretical, critical, and historical contexts of the field. All M.A. students will be given the opportunity to develop their academic teaching skills as teaching assistants in UBC’s undergraduate theatre studies classes. Graduates of the M.A. program have been successful in a range of pursuits following the completion of their degrees. Many have been accepted into doctoral programs both at UBC and prestigious institutions elsewhere. Others have had found the program invaluable for enhancing their credentials and finding work as professional dramaturgs, actors, directors, college instructors, secondary school teachers and arts administrators.
