Course content

This Masters engages with a range of theatre and performance practices, explored in a critically informed context. The programme encompasses practices such as contemporary devising and production dramaturgy, autobiographical performance, and socially/politically engaged practice. You will be encouraged to develop a reflective, rigorous and critically informed approach to theatre practice, with the intention of enriching and enhancing your creative work and furthering your career as a theatre/performance practitioner.

  • The programme is delivered by leading academics in collaboration with theatre practitioners active in Glasgow's performance scene and beyond.
  • The programme provides multiple opportunities for students to develop, present and receive feedback on their own theatre and performance practice. This involves leading professional practitioners acting as mentors for individual students when creating their final practice as research projects.
  • Our facilities include a large flexible-seat theatre seating over 200 spectators as well as smaller studio spaces
  • Glasgow is home to a huge variety of theatres that produce and show a range from the experimental and risky, to the traditional and repertory, from canonical and new writing, to devised and physical performance. World-leading venues include the Citizens’ Theatre, Tramway, Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) and the Glue Factory.
