About

The Department offers a unique set of professional and academic programmes aimed at postgraduate training in Drama and Theatre Studies at the Stellenbosch University. Our programmes may contain both practical and theoretical components and tuition is in Afrikaans and/or English.

Overview

The master's and doctoral programmes are also accessible to individuals with a theoretical knowledge of drama or media, for instance by means of a prior degree in literature or communication studies, or related qualifications.

Like the BAHons in Drama and Theatre Studies, this programme at the Stellenbosch University focuses on the concept of performance, but at this level the emphasis shifts more strongly towards training in, and the application of, independent research and creative work linked to prior training. 

What we offer

The Drama Department offers two options on the master's level:

  • The first option is a thesis counting 50% of the final mark where the candidate has a practical component linked to the research thesis. The practical component can be a continuation of the specialisation of the honours level.
  • The second option is a research thesis that makes up 100% of the final mark.

For both options a research proposal is required before registration.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Thesis (Drama and Theatre Studies)
  • Projects (Drama and Theatre Studies)
