Course Overview

NUI Galway places strong emphasis on interacting with working theatre professionals, as shown by our exciting partnerships with Druid Theatre, Galway Arts Festival, the Abbey Theatre and others. Students take workshops as part of the Druid Academy, attend workshops with visiting practitioners, have the option of carrying out an internship, and visit the theatre frequently, both in Galway and Dublin. Students also have access to the Abbey Theatre Digital Archives, which are housed on campus.

This one-year full-time programme blends theoretical and practical approaches to the study of drama, and is particularly suited to applicants who wish to produce theatre publicly, write or review plays, teach drama, or carry out further academic research. Applicants with a general interest in theatre are also very welcome.

Course Outline

All students take a course in writing about theatre and performance, which covers practical writing skills in such areas as theatre reviewing, writing research papers and preparing grant applications and we also provide you with opportunities to reflect upon your own practice through writing. Students then choose five courses from a variety of options, including:

  • Theatre Business (including internship with an Irish theatre company)
  • Ensemble and Devising
  • New Approaches to Performance
  • Directing for Stage
  • Children’s Theatre
  • 20th Century Directors and Theorists
  • Irish Drama and Theatre from Wilde to O’Casey
  • Irish Drama and Theatre from Beckett to the Present
  • The Abbey Theatre Digital Archive
  • Druid Theatre: Synge, Tom Murphy, Martin McDonagh, Enda Walsh and beyond
  • Theatre Theory
  • Irish Theatre in Practice
  • Exploring the Michael Chekhov Technique
  • Applied Theatre

Career Opportunities

Recent graduates have gone on to work with many theatre companies, including the Abbey Theatre, the Gate Theatre, Rough Magic, and the Young Vic (London) among others. They have also found employment in education, the heritage and tourist industries, arts organisations, business and the public service. Many have progressed to PhD study, often winning scholarships in support of their studies.

Work Placement

Between May and mid-July, students do an internship of approximately three weeks with a professional theatre company or arts institution in Ireland or abroad. NUI Galway's partnerships with theatre companies are an important part of the course.
