The Master in Fine Art Theatre Directing programme is the first entirely practiced-based Masters programme of its kind in Ireland. It was introduced following extensive consultation with the Irish theatre community and is a direct response to the stated needs of the industry and of talented emerging artists. This innovative course is taught in the newly established The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art at Trinity College which is the professional training institution of the School of Drama Film and Music.

Full-time and part-time students will take three concurrent modules in the first two terms. The final module (Module 5) will be taught in the third term and subsequent summer months (for full-time students) or in the second year of the course (for part-time students) and will culminate with a professional production staged in one of The Lir's performance studios. Term Three will be supplemented by an ongoing series of master classes from professional directors and theatre makers. Students on the Master in Fine Art Theatre Directing will take three compulsory modules and choose one of two elective modules. Compulsory modules are Contemporary Theatre Practice, Directing Workshop, Theatre Production. Elective modules are Dramaturgy for Theatre Directing and Theatre Skills.
