The Dramaturgy programme offered by Goethe University Frankfurt includes, amongst other things, the fundamental issues of dramaturgical practice and theory, artistic-practical work in scenic projects, workshops and theory-practice seminars, independent artistic, theoretical and organisational-curating work, the theory, history and analysis of the theatre in all of its variations and manifestations, the representation and critique of theatrical forms, theatre technology, production dramaturgy and insights into the fundamentals of theatre organisation (stage, contract and publishing law, theatre management, press and publicity work).
The Masters Programme in Dramaturgy is a programme of the Chair of Theatre Studies at the Institute for Theatre, Film and Media Studies. At the same time it is part of the Hessian Theatre Academy, an academic and production association of programmes in Hessian tertiary institutions that provide theatre qualifications, and the most important Hessian city and state theatre. The tight connection between academic and practical theatre work arises due to the double positioning of the programme – on the one hand in the Institute for Theatre, Film and Media Studies and, on the other, in the Hessian Theatre Academy. This means that the Dramaturgy Programme already enables students to participate in exchange and cooperation with students from other theatre areas (Theatre Studies, Directing, Acting, Scenography) in seminars and concrete projects within the framework of their studies.
