The MA in Theatre includes a thesis and is focused on the fields 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. The Department offers a collaborative program in Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the MA level. The collaborative master’s in Medieval and Renaissance Studies (MDR) has two goals: To offer at the graduate level a multi-disciplinary education in Medieval and Renaissance Studies; and to teach students the theoretical approaches and methods of research specific to the study of the period.
