Shakespeare Studies MA
This master’s in Shakespeare Studies is taught jointly between King’s and Shakespeare’s Globe. You’ll get unique access to the education and research team at Shakespeare’s Globe, where you’ll learn about early modern playhouses, audiences and performance practices. You’ll join the Globe’s radical theatrical experiment, which is inspired and informed by the unique historic playing conditions of its two beautiful theatres, the Globe and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. At King’s, you’ll learn about early modern drama and other literary genres, consider the cultural and historical context in which Shakespeare and his contemporaries were writing, and examine the long afterlife of his works.
- Uniquely taught at King’s and Shakespeare’s Globe by both academics and visiting experts.
- Use London as a classroom and study in a theatrical context just a stone’s throw from where his plays were initially performed.
- Enjoy a range of cultural events on your doorstep, and access King’s extensive resources and collections.
