Course content

Taught jointly between King's and Shakespeare's Globe, this unique MA programme 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 and performance practices and get access to the Globe and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, while at King’s you will study early modern drama and other literary genres, examining the cultural and historical moment in which Shakespeare and his contemporaries were writing, and learning about the long Shakespearean afterlife.
