Course content

An ideal environment for the study of theatre, Edinburgh brings the performing arts alive through its many theatres, performing companies and, of course, the famous Edinburgh International Festival and the accompanying Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

This programme draws on this inspiration, as well as the research and practical expertise of our exceptional body of staff, which ranges across a broad sweep of cultures and historical periods.

You will be introduced to dramatic and theoretical material from different periods and cultures, and explore the differing conceptions of the roles and perceived dangers of dramatic representation and performance in those cultural contexts.

Supporting your studies will be the resources of our newly created Centre for Film, Performance and Media Arts, as well as professional placement opportunities with local companies and theatres.
