What will you learn?

The aim of the follow-up Master studies is to deepen knowledge and skills acquired during the undergraduate studies. The stress is put on the development of the basic professional skills (working with archival materials, theatre criticism, dramaturgical work, historiographic research), as well as on the interdisciplinary aspect of theatre research (overlaps with psychology, philosophy and sociology of art, and cognitive studies). Students familiarize with up-to-date research methods and trends in Theatre research and related disciplines. At the same time, individual creative activities in research, criticism, and praxis are accentuated. All the aspects of the Master studies aim at developing a complex understanding of theatre in both current and historical contexts.

Theatre is the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. (Thorton Wilder)
