Course summary

About the course

The cultural hub of London is the venue for the MA Theatre Criticism and Dramaturgy at Central (MA TCD). The course balances theoretical study of theatre and performance with the development of diverse skills for dramaturgy and criticism, with applications in scholarship and across the creative industries.

A unique course offering routes to dramaturgy and criticism through critical practice and scholarship
Engages with its London context and embraces the diverse theatre offerings of the city
Critical practice and theatre scholarship are central to the course

Our approach

Engaging with theatre and performance practice of the past and the present, and attuned to the economy and ecology of the landscapes in which it takes place, MA TCD students embrace Central’s unique status as a conservatoire and a University of London college.

At various points, MA TCD students work collectively with students from across Central’s postgraduate portfolio, emerging theatre practitioners and scholars with a range of specialisms and interests. Learning opportunities include seminars and lectures, classwork, independent research, group work and field study in and around London or other cities.

Assessment

Assessment via formats used in the relevant industries and in academia, e.g. visual presentations, conference presentations, essays, reports, reviews and written submissions; and a personal portfolio or dissertation.
