Course Summary

The MA Acting for Stage and Screen is an innovative professional training in stage and screen acting. Through practice-led learning and research alongside leading industry professionals, you will be immersed in developing and enhancing professional techniques in acting, text, voice, movement and performance for stage and screen.

Our goal is to develop flexible and versatile actor-entrepreneurs who are empowered through mastery of their craft across diverse mediums, spaces and platforms. From initial idea through to performance or screening we will encourage and support you in finessing your craft and deepening understanding of your creative, collaboration, performance and research processes.
You will be supported to direct your development and research process to leverage your own personal creative toolkit of skills for a wide range of professional contexts.

This course suite will develop knowledge, cognitive and practical skills and experience to develop dynamic and adaptable actors for stage and screen, who can work across traditional and non-traditional contexts.

You will develop advanced technical and creative skills relevant to your specialist focus within professional practice. Core skills will be developed through collaboration and in-context application across all programme pathways, and industry specific skills will be developed and applied within the industrial context of the student’s workplace, placement context, or chosen community / professional setting.
