M.A.- Performing Shakespeare
We place emphasis on practice-based work. You’ll take part in workshops on voice, text, movement and directing in our state-of-the-art studios.
In addition, you’ll explore current research methods at Master's level and examine Shakespeare’s theatre through theoretical, historical, and cultural contexts.
From the start of the course, you’ll be immersed in practical training which leads to performances of monologues, duologues, and scenes. You’ll also get a grounding in current research methods, completing practical or scholarly research. This leads to a presentation and an essay.
We’ll give you the opportunity to train at Shakespeare’s Globe in London. You’ll develop your training into a professional portfolio. Alongside this, you’ll develop a theatre company with fellow students for public performances.
You can choose to undertake a more traditional written dissertation, a performance-based dissertation, or a mixture of the two. Previous students have undertaken productions, workshops and research into stage and screen productions as part of their dissertation.
There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. The parkland estate has everything you’d expect from a modern university, as well as a castle and a lake. All this and it's only four miles from the buzz of central Bath.

Job Opportunity Potential
We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:
- Exploring your options
- Gaining valuable experience
- Progressing your ideas and career plans
At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.
We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
- 2 Years PSW is applicable after the course completing (Bachelors level or above).
