What is a Master in Drama? This program focuses on equipping students with the knowledge and practice necessary for a career in theatre. The typical academic curriculum establishes an overview of artistic and pedagogical theory, both historical and contemporary. From there, students can study the cultural and educational contexts of the performing arts and engage in relevant practices to hone a firsthand understanding.

In the process of achieving a Master in Drama, students may develop critical thinking and teaching skills to further their understanding and convey it to others. The program also generally builds a cultural perspective regarding the fine arts and a capacity for independent research helpful in many careers.

A Master in Drama requires around two years of full-time work, both academic and practical. Tuition costs vary, so students should research thoroughly any school they are interested in to find information on the expected costs.

The most prominent goal of a graduate with a Master in Drama is a role as an actor on the stage or the big screen, but the skills and perspective developed through earning the degree lend themselves well to other related pursuits. Scriptwriters and theater designers also work in positions closely involved with the center stage, as do directors and choreographers. Some students go on to work in community arts projects both for experience and contributing to their community, while others may apply their education as performing arts therapists.

Pursuing a Master in Drama is a valuable step towards a career in the fine arts. Programs are available worldwide, and many are also online for students living in remote areas.
