Entry requirements

The MA Theatre and Performance welcomes applicants from scholarly as well as artistic backgrounds. Normally, the principle requirement is a first or upper second class honours degree (or the equivalent) in a relevant field. Where a North American marking scheme is used, applicants should normally have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.3.

Promising applicants who do not meet the formal academic criteria but who possess relevant credentials and who can demonstrate their potential to produce written work at masters level will also be considered. As part of the admissions process, we may call for examples of written and artistic work and/or interview candidates.

Students from outside of the UK help form a global community here at Queen Mary. For detailed country specific entry requirements please visit the International section of our website. If your first language is not English, you must provide evidence of your English language proficiency. You can find details on our English language entry requirements page.

Course content

The MA in Theatre and Performance is an innovative programme that is committed to socially-engaged and critically inventive exploration into theatre and performance.

The programme is interdisciplinary in its scope, and provides students with a range of opportunities to analyse and create theatre and performance in relation to a wide variety of critical contexts and cultural and historical perspectives.

You will benefit from our expertise in five main strands in theatre and performance: cultural politics; transnational practice; experimental practice; applied practice; and cultural industries. A key benefit of the programme is its flexibility: within a framework of informed and structured experimentation, you can develop theoretical and practical projects to advance your own investigations.
