Career prospects

International Dramaturgy (Arts and Crafts)

The programme aims to provide students with different dramaturgical skills and competencies. As a graduate you will be ideally suited for a career in which you serve as a bridge between theory and practice, complementing artistic and cultural processes and initiatives, as well as facilitating meaningful collaborations and exchanges across the world.

The programme focuses on practices of cultural translation, cross-cultural mediation and curation. As a graduate of the programme, you will be able to research the transformations of the profession and functions of the dramaturge in an international context and through transnational collaborations.

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

Given the growing demand for cultural professionals with the skills of working in transnational and multilingual settings, the programme offers a qualification that is grounded in theatre and performance but with a wide applicability in other domains of the arts and culture.
