Ideal for those in full-time employment, our Theatre MA from the Guildford School of Acting (GSA) provides a gateway to an exciting future without the need for regular attendance on campus.
You’ll have unlimited access to our virtual learning environment where you’ll be supported by highly experienced and passionate tutors.
Furthering your skills, our course will take you deeper into the fascinating history of theatre from both a practical and critical perspective.
What you will study
Our Theatre MA allows you to study at your own pace through online learning, so you can pursue your passion for theatre and develop industry connections around your existing commitments.
You’ll actively engage with fundamental principles and explore the rich heritage of theatre from a critical, historical and theoretical perspective. You’ll gain an understanding of theatrical practices and develop your ability to evaluate significant artistic, historical, social and political developments in theatre.
Our broad range of modules incorporates topics such as:
- The Background to Theatre
- The Greeks
- Naturalism and the Actor
- Modern Theatre
- Global Theatres
- Music and Dance in Theatre.
You’ll also complete an independent research project that will allow you to specialise in an area of particular interest to you, and you’ll complete a professional development portfolio relevant to your career path.
