Selección 203


The Official Masters Degree in Arts Education: Thought and Contemporary Creative Performance (Master Oficial en Enseñanzas Artísticas: Pensamiento y creación escénica contemporánea) occupies a transdisciplinary position between philosophical roots and artistic sources. It was created in order to respond to the creative challenges of the 21st century.

The Masters course educational team is made up of teachers who have a solid academic background and of creative artists renowned in their fields.  Two prominent international institutions – the Centre of Theatrical Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium) and the College of Arts of the University of Coimbra (Portugal) – are also involved as partners.  The course has an on-site study programme with a workload of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits, and is divided into three modules.  The first addresses the philosophical problems of society today; the second deals with contemporary artistic poetics as seen through the various disciplines which make up the performing arts (theatre, dance, music and living arts), while the third is dedicated to the Dissertation and external placements.

Master classes, theoretical and practical sessions and training seminars with creative artists – together with attendance at performances and rehearsals – all form part of a study programme that offers young creative artists the opportunity to find a platform from which to develop their own voice.  The profile of the invited teachers, the placement programme and the possibility of undertaking doctoral studies at a later date are, without doubt, the main strengths of the Masters course.

Who is it aimed at?


It is aimed at a diverse student profile: on the one hand, students interested in ideas and performing arts research; on the other hand, students attracted by artistic creativity that promotes dialogue between the arts, critical thinking and the theatre. This Masters can be taken both by higher-education students qualified in arts education and by university graduates, as well as those with an equivalent official qualification issued by an institution of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).
