Description The Department of Theatre offers two graduate programs, one leading to a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in directing for the theatre, and the other to a Master of Arts (MA) in theatre. The Master of Arts (MA) in theatre (with thesis) focuses on the field of theatre theory and dramaturgy. The objective of this program is to bridge theoretical and practical approaches to the study of theatre by encouraging dialogue and understanding between practitioners and theoreticians. The program enables students to broaden their academic scope with regard to the epistemological and interdisciplinary specificities of theatre as an art form and as a discipline of study; it encourages the analysis of the Western world’s principal theatrical traditions from various discursive perspectives; it fosters a greater understanding of Canada’s two principal theatrical traditions and helps develop scholarly discourse in regards to each.
