Overview and admission

Study Type


Admission semester

Winter Semester only

Area of study
  • Dramaturgy
  • Theatre Studies

The course teaches the basics of theatre history and theatre studies as well as basic technical artistic skills, enabling you to carry out independent artistic work on rehearsal stages and in studios. On the artistic side of things, the separation of teaching and research is partially removed, i.e. in the scenic projects, you will explore some new artistic paths. The artistic training is not only understood as the teaching of an authentic craft, but also as work contributing to the future questions within the field. The desired aim of the degree course is to train artists who reflect on their practical work and how it relates to theory, as well as theorists who develop their theories from the dialogue with practical work.
