Monash Arts is internationally recognised for producing innovative, engaging and high quality research, and the PhD (Theatre performance) is considered one of the most outstanding and comprehensive courses of its kind in any Australian university. It is run by the Centre of Theatre Performance (CTP), home to one of the largest cohort of postgraduate students in theatre and performance in Australia.
Supported and guided by at least two expert supervisors, our practice-based PhD program in Theatre Performance will give you the practical experience and opportunity to develop your expertise as a researcher and the professional tools needed to undertake translation work for professional purposes.
This PhD program has three components: a live performance, a critical commentary of the performance, and research. Your research training is then further enhanced by professional development activities designed to support you develop general professional skills valuable to prospective employers in academia, industry, government and the broader community. With this doctoral program you will be able to demonstrate that you have successfully designed and executed a research project that makes an original and substantial contribution to theatre performance.
