Students on the Master in Theatre Studies prepare themselves for the challenge of becoming an expert actor in the field of theatre studies, with an approach which takes the whole phenomenon of theatre into account. At the end of their training, the students will be able to master and employ knowledge and critical analysis skills in respect of theatrical creation and performing arts, in order to independently and relevantly approach their current or future practice and become an active cultural actor in the world of professional theatre.
In order to achieve that, students will master a broad range of knowledge relating to theory and practice, tools, concepts and methods in various disciplines required in order to understand problems in the field of theatre studies and performing arts.
Students will employ their knowledge and skills in order to understand, analyse and respond to situations/problems in all areas of and in respect of all the complexities of the field of performing arts:

- in accordance with a multidisciplinary approach ensuring the adoption of a critical and nuanced posture regarding the contributions made by different disciplines;
- in accordance with questioning which takes the institutional, historical and cultural specifics of performing arts into account;
- by appropriately and compatibly communicating and interacting with the different actors involved in a given situation;
- by proposing action plans in response to a situation or problem.
Depending upon the focus chosen, students can give their training either a bias towards specialised skills in theatrical practices and professions, or towards specific teaching skills.

Students will integrate a continuous developmental logic which allows them to perform as professionals demonstrating high-level expertise and flexibility, and be able to adapt and develop positively within the context of their work.
