About

The Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies program of University of Toronto focus on the program fields of Dramatic Theory, Dramaturgy, and Theatre History.

Overview

The Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies program of University of Toronto is an interdisciplinary program that intersects research in the fields of drama, theatre and performance studies including research in dramatic literature, cross-cultural theory and histories of theatre and performance, conceptual and applied models of dramaturgy and methodologies of practice-based research. Graduating students will be well equipped to pursue doctoral studies, serve as innovative leaders in cultural institutions and the performing arts, or become creative entrepreneurs.

Based on faculty research, we offer support for studies in Canadian theatre; Indigenous and East Asian theatre; dance and physical theatre; popular theatre; cross-cultural communication through performance and media; studies of experimental and avant-garde theatre in North America, Asia, and Europe; early modern theatre and archival studies; queer and feminist performance theory, ethics, and equity in theatre and performance; theatre and globalization; and digital humanities in performance. In addition to courses in the program, students are encouraged to take advantage of cross-listed courses and research opportunities across the humanities, sciences and social sciences. Bi-linguality or multi-linguality is an asset as well as creative artistic experience and a developed level of digital literacy.

Students entering the MA program can choose between the coursework-only option and thesis-based option. Applicants interested in the part-time MA option should contact the Associate Director (graduate) to obtain specific information prior to application.
