The Master´s programme consists primarily of three parts:
1. Thematic courses where you develop practical methods and approaches and gain a contextual and theoretical understanding of the field. Special attention will be given to discourses and practices relating to the bodily, conceptual, material and audience-related aspects of performing arts. You will also be able to opt for an elective course.
2. Method courses that prepare you for artistic research and introduce you to key methods and concepts within the field. The method courses bring together students from a range of MAs across SKH which allows for exchange of experience across different artistic disciplines’ approaches and methods.
3. An individual artistic project (the Degree project). Within these courses, you finalize, document and present the project with which you initially applied in a form which is appropriate to the investigation. In presenting the project you reflect and contextualize your practical investigation, and engage in a deepened, critical dialogue.
The MA is taught both online and on campus in Stockholm (IRL) . You will be expected to attend 3-4 weeks of compulsory workshops on campus per semester. All other teaching will take place as weekly sessions online (Zoom). Individual work with preparation, tasks, reading etc. is included. The method courses and the elective course can be followed digitally or IRL at SKH.
