Postgraduate Drama and Theatre studies at Kent has a very strong reputation for research and supervision in contemporary performance processes, applied performance and European theatre.
This programme offers you the opportunity to combine scholarly and practical approaches to the advanced study of Shakespeare. You develop knowledge and understanding of Shakespeare, both historically and within the contemporary theatrical scene, within and beyond, the horizon of British theatre practice.
Teaching includes workshops, a two-week residency at Shakespeare’s Globe, guest lectures from practitioners, as well as creative work both individually and in teams and groups. It culminates in an individual MA dissertation or an extended practical project.
The wide-ranging interests of our international team of leading and emerging researchers (from the UK, Australia, Malta, Greece, Germany and other countries) also include research strengths in Shakespeare, 18th-century theatre, multimedia performance, and in the history of comedy and popular performance.
