3 Masters Programs in Directing

A master’s degree is a much-pursued goal for those seeking to build their academic background and career opportunities. Students can achieve a higher level of expertise in a narrower field of study than in their undergraduate programs. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates advanced knowledge and skills that employers value.

Fine arts students looking for the next step in their career may ask: what is a Master in Directing? This program aims to develop in students the perspective of a creative leader in the arts. Fundamental courses build on academic theories of storytelling through performance and practical understanding of collaborating with other artists, and over the course of the program students are likely to work on their own directing projects. The curriculum may focus on directing in either theatre, TV or film.

Students working towards a Master in Directing can develop leadership skills, vital in any field but especially as a director. They may also hone their abilities in analyzing and interpreting texts and conveying story and meaning through a unified aesthetic.

Obtaining a Master in Directing typically involves two to three years of academic and practical work. The tuition costs for the courses taken varies between schools, and aspiring students should make sure to research this when deciding on a school.

Whether a play, movie or TV show, a director is needed to manage the project. A Master in Directing, along with other formal education and training, establishes credentials for aspiring directors to stand out. The director’s role involves consulting with and mediating between producers, writers, actors and other workers, creating a unified direction under which everyone performs at their best. Directors in video media also oversee production to oversee cameramen and actors and judge whether a scene’s take makes the cut.

Many schools around the world provide programs towards earning a Master in Directing, with online classes being a useful option for students. To find out more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
