Theatre Studies MA
The Master of Arts Degree in Theatre Studies is a research-based degree that offers students the opportunity to work with award-winning theatre scholars and practitioners. The program provides an integrated graduate education that applies several dynamic approaches to theatre studies that merge theory and practice and aims to prepare students for both doctoral-level study and careers in the academy, and for a broad range of careers related to the performing arts. The program builds on the expertise of its award-winning faculty and on Guelph’s extensive Trellis Tri-University Library holdings. Through its courses and the readily available supervision that a relatively small enrolment permits, and through its final projects (thesis or research paper), the Theatre Studies MA Program encourages independent research and self-learning, and is strongly research-oriented as opposed to providing graduate-level training in theatre practice.
Graduates of the Program gain entry into doctoral programs and academic positions, and pursue careers in arts administration, research, law, teaching, publishing, the media, creative writing, public relations, and the entertainment industry.
