Course summary

This MA course offers you the opportunity to study the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. You will be able to draw on expertise at both King’s and Shakespeare’s Globe, studying Shakespeare close to the types of theatres for which he wrote and just a stone’s throw from where his plays were originally performed. At the Globe you will learn about early modern playhouses, audiences, performance practices and get to play on the stage and at King’s you will cover early modern drama and other literary genres, examining Shakespeare alongside his contemporaries.

This degree is offered jointly by King’s and Globe Education, allowing you to capitalise on the academic and practical expertise of both of these institutions. Through this degree you will pursue advanced study of the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, making use of the facilities and opportunities provided by Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and by King’s. You will develop a detailed knowledge of early modern drama, particularly Shakespearean drama.

Our recent graduates have gone on to study PhDs at King’s and at the Universities of Cambridge, Columbia, New York, CUNY and Massachusetts, and subsequently to jobs at Cambridge, the Shakespeare Institute, Newcastle, and in North Carolina. Others are using the skills they developed with us to excel in careers in arts administration at, for example, Globe Education, National Theatre, Barbican, English National Opera and to edit for publishers in the US and UK.
