Course summary

Our MA Creative Enterprise: Theatre pathway allows you to combine your passion for the arts with studies in law, management and entrepreneurship.

On the theatre pathway, you’ll explore theatre practice and its critical contexts, learn about the importance of programming and curating in the contemporary theatre landscape, and deepen your understanding of industry trends and practices.

This MA programme is a collaboration, taught by three world-renowned schools at the University of Reading – the School of Arts and Communication Design, Henley Business School and the School of Law. You will be based in the Department of Film, Theatre and Television, situated at the heart of the University’s Whiteknights campus.

The theatre pathway is ideal if you are hoping to develop a career in arts journalism, theatre management and administration, entrepreneurial projects in theatre and the creative industries, or arts teaching and research. Our students are encouraged to make the most of our excellent connections to the creative industries right from the start of the course.

You will join a vibrant, supportive department, based in the world-class Minghella Studios. Our teaching is informed by expertise in a range of contemporary-theatre themes, and our community of academic staff has a longstanding commitment to scholarly excellence and research through practice.

While studying on the theatre pathway, you will also benefit from working alongside students on other Creative Enterprise pathways (such as Film and Art), opening up even more opportunities for you to build connections, and to enrich your understanding of the creative industries.

WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?

The MA Creative Enterprise is designed to improve the skills and employability of people passionate about the arts. Graduates of the programme will be in a strong position to pursue start-up opportunities on their own, take managerial roles in the creative sector, or embark on further scholarly research into the arts and creative industries.
