Course summary

If you’re interested in the performance of Shakespeare and want to study original and contemporary professional practices, this MA is for you. You’ll take part in actor training and research seminars, leading to presentations and performances using our indoor and outdoor theatres on campus and in Bath city centre.

You’ll develop production and networking skills, building a theatre company and a professional profile. We’ll give you opportunities to take your work to external venues as part of your studies. With opportunities to work with BA Acting and Drama students, you’ll gain experience as an actor who can lead workshops and as a researcher who can work in productions.

Overview

We place emphasis on practice-based work. You’ll take part in workshops on voice, text, movement and directing in our state-of-the-art studios.

In addition, you’ll explore current research methods at Master's level and examine Shakespeare’s theatre through theoretical, historical, and cultural contexts.

How will I be taught?

The degree is delivered through a variety of workshops, lectures, seminars, masterclasses, off-site visits, performance and production work, and through our Virtual Learning Environment, Minerva. We invite professional actors and directors to work with you, and we have an ever-expanding list of lecturers, specialists, artists, and guest scholars.

This Master’s is taught in the evenings in three-hour workshops. If you’re looking for a more flexible learning option, we also offer part-time modes.
