Arts and Culture: Theatre Studies

Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

The Master's programme Theatre Studies at the University of Amsterdam provides opportunities to acquire insight into the processes of theatrical creation and perception.Aspects of theatre and performance are omnipresent in today's global community. Students of this programme study theatre in the broadest sense of the word, as a cultural phenomenon currently undergoing a process of globalisation.
Theatre Studies provides a wide range of opportunities for acquiring insight into processes of theatrical creation and perception, as well as aspects of theatricality both within and across cultures. The courses are organised around five themes: Theatre and Globalization, Theatre and History, Theatre and Society, Theatre Analysis, and Performance and Performativity.
Students can also prepare a performance together with students of the Professional Master's in Dramaturgy. In this practical course, students cooperate with fellow students on staging a play. This project enables students to acquire first‑hand experience regarding what happens when a text becomes a performance (including the potential problems associated with this process).

Theatre Studies is an accredited degree programme. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master's degree in Arts and Culture and the title Master of Arts (MA).

Admission is on a case-by-case basis.
