The Master's programme Theatre Studies at the University of Amsterdam provides opportunities to acquire insight into the processes of theatrical creation and perception.
Aspects of theatre and performance are omnipresent in today's global community. It is therefore important to study theatre in the broadest sense of the word, not only as part of the national (Dutch) culture but also as a cultural phenomenon currently undergoing a process of globalisation. The Master's programme Theatre Studies at the University of Amsterdam provides a wide range of opportunities for acquiring insight into processes of theatrical creation and perception, as well as aspects of theatricality both within and across cultures. The courses are organised around five themes: theatre and history, theatre and society, performance and theatre analysis, theories of theatre, and performance and performativity.
