Masters in Dramatic Arts

The dramatic arts major is a category of study that allows students to focus their studies on theatrical productions and techniques as well as a study of dramatic literature. Specific classes you can expect to take include acting, directing, improvisation, the history of theater, theater practicum, dramatic and theatrical criticism, stage management, and play writing. To be accepted into the Masters in Dramatic Arts program, you will need to have your undergraduate degree completed in a related major, such as liberal arts, design, theater, visual or performing arts, acting, or other artistic major.

Much of your coursework can be completed online if you are a dedicated person. While not a having a teacher present and other students to compare their work to your own is an excellent benefit in the eyes of many students, you must be self-motivated if you are to succeed in an online classroom setting. You can complete your classes based on your own schedule rather than the schools, and you can complete your program with full accreditation without paying as much for your formal education.
