Drama and Applied Theatre

Master Autumn 2020

The Master Degree programme is a postgraduate degree programme with a drama pedagogical approach and applicants must have previous training and experience in drama and theatre.

The practical experience components of the programme ensures the connection to the field of practice in which drama and applied theatre intersect.

The programme is aimed at students, teachers, cultural workers or other arts practitioners with previous experience, training and interest in drama and theatre from a drama pedagogical perspective. It builds on the bachelor's degree or a cand.mag. degree from a college, university or similar, and requires a minimum of 80 ECTS credits in drama/theatre studies.

Study methods

The work forms will be a combination of lectures, seminars, individual and group tutorials, performance/workshop, writing assignments and independent reading. The students must participate in study groups, practise peer-based tutoring and participate in seminar and project submissions. This requires active participation in the programme and regular attendance.

Canvas is the study support system, and the students are expected to use it actively. Off-site activities such as professional conferences or excursions are part of the curriculum in the first year of study. Costs for these activities are covered by the students themselves.

Student exchange

The Drama Department has a number of foreign partners, both inside and outside the Nordic region, making international exchange possible.
