Classical and Contemporary Text (Acting) or (Directing) MA Royal Conservatoire of Scotland



Course info


MA Classical and Contemporary Text is a vocational postgraduate programme of study for emerging artists. The programme aims to enable actors and directors to acquire practical skills, knowledge and understanding in relation to contemporary/new writing and classical text.

The programme offers two pathways, acting or directing, with all students working together as an ensemble. There will be numerous opportunities to learn and experiment, in projects, rehearsals and performances; creative collaboration lies at the heart of all the work. As part of your studies, you will complete a one-month residency at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, developing your knowledge and skills in classical text in this unique, iconic environment. You will spend time working on both classical and contemporary texts.

These plays are performed to a public and professional audience within RCS and at external venues in Glasgow. You will end your studies with the opportunity to perform in industry showcases in Glasgow and London. Through this programme you will benefit from professional connections allowing you to develop invaluable industry contacts. When you graduate, you will have gained practical, high-level experience of working in the profession, as well as all-important contacts and the skills to underpin your future career. The programme also encourages you to generate your own performance ideas, so that you can emerge into the professional world with a greater sense of yourself as a creative, self-reliant artist.
