Performance Studies 

Master of Arts in Theatre and
Performance Praxis 

Students of the Master of Arts in Theatre and Performance Studies and the Master of Arts in Theatre and Performance Praxis are expected to understand the self, Philippine society and culture through theatre, cultural performance, and live events; conceptualize and design live performance events; reflect on the role of theatre and performance in world histories; and produce theoretically-informed research and creative projects in theatre and performance. 

The curriculum of the MA in Theater and Performance Studies is designed for scholars, researchers, teachers, and critics of Philippine performance traditions. This program allows students to gain fluency in the critical analysis of theater and performance, with focus and emphasis on the theatrical and performance traditions of the Philippines. Students are expected to complete 39 units of coursework, including 6 units of a master’s thesis. 

On the other hand, the curriculum of MA in Theatre and Performance Praxis is designed for theatre and performance practitioners who are interested to back-up their skills with performance theories. Students must take 12 units of Theatre Electives to focus on technical and skills-based theatre courses in preparation for the program’s creative project requirements. To date, we welcome students who are interested to strengthen their theoretical and practical skills in acting, directing, and dramaturgy. Students under this program are expected to complete 39 units of coursework, including 6 units of a creative project.
