Course summary

Visit the theatre in Scotland and you will likely see the work of a QMU graduate. Whether you see them performing, hear the words of their script or view their artistry as director, scenographer or producer, they are building a successful and exciting career in drama thanks to their time at QMU.

To have a successful career in the theatre, you need to understand the theoretical and practical aspects of its historical context, techniques and craft. On this course you’ll learn the collaborative skills and process involved in creating and staging plays, and will experiment with key contemporary performance practices.
You’ll explore all aspects of theatre both front and back stage, including the audience.We challenge conventional assumptions of what the performing arts can be and who they are for – from both a practitioner and audience perspective.
