We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Drama focus on advanced study of the performing arts in a theatrical context. Individual courses may cover a range of topics, from practical techniques to the management of venues and the production of performances. Some programmes may specialise in one or two areas.
This is a broad field, offering taught MA qualifications as well as practical MFA degrees, research-based MRes programmes and shorter Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas.
Needless to say, postgraduate study in Drama may prepare you for a range of careers associated with the theatre.
You could work in the practical staging, design and production of performances. Alternatively, you could focus on the business of theatrical work: the management of venues and the creation of successful plays and shows.
Some courses also offer practical training, but students specifically seeking to study Acting, Dance or Music should look for Masters degrees in these areas.
Beyond the theatre, a Masters in Drama can lead to work in education (at school, college or university level) as well as broader roles in the cultural and creative industries.
