Programme objectives

The Master`s programme builds on the Bachelor's programme and is intended for its successful graduates as well as for other students. Despite the fact that the programme`s main focus are various theatrical forms including modern ones (new circus, scenographic theatre, happenings on the fringe of genres, etc.), unlike the Bachelor?s programme instruction is expanded to other areas, in particular so-called live scenic art (also called "performing arts"), i.e. dance and music, and peripherally to other types of art as well.
The content of the main subjects is determined in particular by the selected programme specialisation (see, or the approved topic of the Master`s project. This provides for an individual approach to the student, for whom an individual study focus is formulated on the basis of the adopted theoretical direction and by agreement with an expert consultant; the focus is based on the student`s professional interests, his/her acquired practice, experience and possibly also his/her Bachelor`s programme.
The instruction is focused in particular on developing the student`s creative production and managerial abilities, on his/her personal development and on a research project in a selected area.
The instructional methods also include direct contact with prominent producers, artists and experts in the area of arts management (in the non-commercial and business spheres alike), or direct contact on the part of students with events in the area of culture e.g. by attending scholarly conferences or participating in seminars organised by the most variegated entities active in culture.

Graduate profile

Graduates are capable of independently defining artistic projects, performing analyses and feasibility studies of artistic projects, defining strategic and realisation plans, assembling working teams, directing them, and possibly leading smaller theatrical organisations or the non-artistic departments of large institutions in the performing arts.
Graduates are prepared for work in the management of theatrical institutions, in particular non-profit repertory theatres, possibly business entities in culture, or as independent initiators of artistic activities - producers, possibly analysts in the area of the conditions of running an artistic operation.
