The professional Master's in International Dramaturgy at the UvA is geared at training future generations of dramaturges who will work across cultural, linguistic, social or national boundaries.

The University of Amsterdam's Theatre Studies department offers an international oriented programme in Dramaturgy. This professional Master's in International Dramaturgy has been developed in reaction to the internationalisation of the professional field and handles accordingly as its main objective the formation of internationally operating dramaturges.

Students of this programme receive training in those aspects of cultural interpretation, adaptation and mediation that are essential to working in a wide range of international, cross-cultural contexts, whether in experimental small-scale production processes or in international theatre and performance venues and groups.

Graduates will be in a position to work in diverse cultural, artistic and/or academic sectors. This ranges from a dramaturgical position in theatre and performance companies and organisations, to being art critics or cultural commentators, to programming and coordinating functions or academic research.

After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master's degree in Arts and Culture and the title Master of Arts (MA).
