University of East London
We believe this is a unique master�s course, combining the academic study of performance with a practice-based approach to the art of acting. It�s ideal if you want to to pursue a professional career in the theatre, to develop a deeper understanding of your craft and hone your performance skills. Based at our new, state-of-the-art University Square Stratford building, you will work in close collaboration with students and academic staff on our equally excellent MA Theatre Directing course as you produce and perform a range of innovative work of professional quality while also being given expert tuition in the skills of acting. Taught in the evenings and on Saturdays and available for both part-time and full-time study to fit around your needs, it�s a course geared to equip you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to be a stage actor. You will be guided by leading theatre practitioners, who will both teach and mentor you. After a final degree show in which you will have the chance to showcase your talents, you will leave our course ready to discover that all the world�s your stage.
Minimum 2.2 Honours degree in theatre, performance studies or another appropriate discipline (or recognised international equivalent). IELTS 7.0 with 6.5 in all components.
Modules include: Actor training; performance laboratory; staging performance; research methods; dissertation/production.
For each module, we�ll assess you on your coursework components. These components typically consist of a performance and a critical reflection on that performance. You take one or two modules per term and there is a dissertation project to be taken over the final term. The MA Acting is practice-based, so the final dissertation module consists of a performance piece involving both acting and directing students and a critical reflection on that work.
