Creative Enterprise (Theatre Pathway)

This MA programme is a collaboration, taught by a team of world-renowned specialists from three leading schools at the University of Reading the School of Arts and Communication Design, Henley Business School and the School of Law. You will be based in the department of Film, Theatre and Television, situated at the heart of the University's Whiteknights campus. The theatre pathway is suitable for students with both theoretical and practical profiles, and is ideal if you are hoping to develop a career as a theatre maker, producer, programmer or researcher. You will be given the knowledge you need to pursue your ambitions through a combination of modules in management and intellectual property with core modules in theatre. The course aims to increase your opportunities to work in professional theatre contexts, and you will be encouraged to make the most of our excellent connections to the creative industries right from the start of the course. You will join a vibrant, supportive department, based in the world-class Minghella Studios. Our teaching is informed by expertise in a range of contemporary-theatre themes, and our community of academic staff has a longstanding commitment to scholarly excellence and research through practice. While studying on the theatre pathway, you will also benefit from working alongside students on other Creative Enterprise pathways (such as Film and Art), opening up even more opportunities for you to build connections, and to enrich your understanding of the creative industries. **Careers** The MA Creative Enterprise is designed to improve the skills and employability of people passionate about the arts.
