The aim of the MA in Musical Theatre course is to provide you with the advanced skills to prepare you for work in a diverse industry. The course reflects the varied nature of working in musical theatre; it will provide you with the opportunity to focus on professional practice, whilst enabling you to learn how to promote both yourself (as practitioner, academic and/or performer) and the work you create. More importantly, it creates an environment where you have to work collaboratively. The MA in Musical Theatre provides you with the unique opportunity of a residency, designed to help you create, prepare and stage work in a theatre. Working closely with industry specialists, you will nurture the skills required to help you make a contribution to contemporary musical theatre. You will also foster flexible skills which can be applied to a wide range of career opportunities in the musical theatre industry and beyond, including; teamwork skills, problem solving, self-promotion, working to deadlines and critical thinking.
MA: You will need a good degree (2.1 or above) in Musical Theatre or a related subject e.g. Drama, Performance, Dance, Music, Theatre Studies. Applicants with a 2.2 degree may also be considered following a successful audition and interview. Applicants from overseas should also have a good standard of written and spoken English (normally IELTS 6.5 or equivalent). All students will be interviewed to assess their suitability and preparedness for the course. Candidates will be considered with a significant track record of professional experience in a relevant field, but without a BA (Hons) degree. To do this, non-standard applicants in this category will be interviewed, and may be asked to produce a piece of written work as a means of assessing their suitability.
