Course Overview

This full-time MA programme aims to prepare students for professional-level work in the theatre and/or other creative industries—or to deepen the knowledge of people who are already working in those fields. Students take modules in many different aspects of theatre practice, including ensemble performance, direction, acting, and so on. An optional internship with an Irish theatre company forms part of the course. During hte summer months, students complete a practice-based project, involving the staging of their own plays and/or performances, which they write about in the form of a final dissertation.

The course is suited to anyone with an interest in Drama and Theatre, especially theatre practitioners who wish to gain a formal qualification for their work, and amateur/student performers who wish to enhance and develop their skills. Candidates who do not hold a primary degree may apply on the basis of relevant experience.

Central to the programme is the work of the Druid Academy. It allows students to benefit from NUI Galway’s partnership with Druid Theatre—recently described by the New York Times as “one of the world’s great theatre companies”. Students work directly with the Druid Director-in-Residence and participate in master classes and workshops with members of the company, including artistic director Garry Hynes, the first woman to win a Tony Award for directing.

There are some scholarship opportunities available for this programme. Please visit the MA (Humanities) Scholarships website for more information.
