Duration of Study & Degree Requirements
Normally the M.A. program requires one year of full-time study or the part-time equivalent. In some cases, particularly where there is an insufficient concentration of courses in drama at the undergraduate level, candidates may be admitted to a full-time M.A. program two years in length, with additional course requirements. The Centre also may prescribe specific courses in the individual programs of M.A. candidates.
For the one-year Master of Arts, candidates are required:
1. to complete the equivalent of at least four full-year credits of approved graduate seminar courses including DRA 5000Y: Praxis.
2. to spend at least one academic year or up to twelve months in full-time study, or the equivalent in part-time work. Note: It is not possible to complete the MA requirements for a convocation in June.
For the two-year Master of Arts, candidates are required:
1. to complete the requirements for the one-year program, plus two additional full-year credits of approved graduate courses (or four H or half courses).
Students taking the Master of Arts part-time:
will complete the degree in two or more years (up to five). To complete in two years (that is, for example, to attend half-time), students would register in at least two (and as many as two and a half) full-credit academic courses (or the equivalent in half courses) per year including DRA 5000Y. Consult the Associate Director, Graduate for further details on alternate completion schemes.
