Regulations for the Degree of Master of Drama & Theatre

 

   

1.

The graduate program offers an M.A. degree in Drama and Theatre, which normally takes two to four years to complete.

 

2.

The program requires a thesis in addition to 24 credits of coursework, of which at least 18 credits must be from courses offered by the program, at least 15 credits must be from courses designed exclusively for graduate students, and at least 1 credit in research methods.

 

3.

The 1-credit research method course is required for candidates regardless of divisions. Candidates from Division B are required to take four more courses (summing up to at least 8 credits) relating to play writing. For candidates of both divisions who enroll in/after the academic year 2009, two more courses are required: Readings in Western Dramatic Theory (3 credits) and Readings in Chinese Dramatic Theory (3 credits).

 

4.

Candidates who enrolled in/before the academic year 2008 are subject to take three non-accrediting prerequisite courses at the university level: (1) Play Production III or Rehearsal II~V, (2) History of Chinese Drama, and (3) History of Western Drama. Those who enrolled in/after 2009, only Play Production III or Rehearsal II~V is prerequisite.

 

5.

Before submitting the M.A. thesis or essay (see below), which requires an oral defense, candidates must pass qualifying examinations on two of the following four subjects: (1) Topics in Chinese Drama and Theatre, (2) Topics in Western Drama and Theatre, (3) Performance and Directing Studies, and (4) Theatre Crafts and Design.  Students may take the qualifying exams only after they have completed 18 graduate-level credits.

 

6.

M.A. candidates can graduate with a concentration on dramatic theory, playwriting, or design.  Those specializing in dramatic theory should submit a thesis with no less than 90 pages (bibliography included) in MLA Citation Style (12-font, 1.5 space).  All others should submit a critical essay with no less than 30,000 words in the same format as thesis other than their playwriting or theatrical design. The design work has to be publicized in an open performance no shorter than 70 minutes.
