Course Introduction

MA Directing is a new four year integrated Masters course which equips you with the artistic and technical skills suitable for work or for further training in theatre, film, television and radio. Working closely with BA Acting, the course gives you a deep understanding of the acting process and a common language with performers. In the latter stages of the course you will experiment and express your voice in an increasingly challenging and diverse set of contexts across different media and gain valuable experience from professional placements. You will benefit from conservatoire training in directing with Drama Centre's distinctive approach, exploring the Stanislavsky system, German Expressionism and the legacy of Rudolf Laban. You will engage in a range of collaborations with acting, writing and design students across Drama Centre and the Drama and Performance Programme. The course is taught at Central Saint Martins, King's Cross.
