The MA in Theatre Practice and Production prepares students for professional-level work in the theatre and other creative industries. Students take modules in many different aspects of theatre practice, including ensemble performance, direction and performance. An optional internship with an Irish theatre company forms part of the course. During the summer months, students complete a practice-based research project in acting, playwriting, direction, devising or design and this is used for their final dissertation.
Students benefit from our continuing links and partnerships with many Irish theatre companies, including Druid, The Abbey (Irelands National Theatre), the street theatre company Macnas and the world-renowned Galway Arts Festival. Our intensive programme of talks by leading artists and scholars puts you directly into conversations about the state of theatre now.
