Humanities - Everything & Nothing?

Overview

When I began to study theater science, 1998 was the most asked question: What do you do with it? Today, eleven years later, the question of the same people is: How did you come to the profession? Have not you studied theater science?

This is a very good summary of the problems of the course of studies. Like most humanities, theater science is nothing. The most important thing is still what you pull yourself out of the study for yourself and especially through what internships and work-study jobs you finally decide for the one or the other career.

Theater Studies: What is actually being studied?

Overview

But first and foremost, the most important thing for all, who are thinking about this course of study: the course of study is called Theater SCIENCE! Many, quite a lot to be precise, overlook this word grudgingly during enrollment and are then disappointed.

Even in my year, not even half of all freshers have taken the intermediate exam because they have finally decided on a more practice-oriented course of study or training. Anyone who believes that they can attend drama courses, film practice, scenic internships or directing seminars during a theater science degree program is wrong.

Theory instead of practice reference

Overview

It is true that such offers are at the institutes as a quasi "practice goodie" exist, but by far not make up the bulk of the study. The main focus of the theater science institutes is on conveying theoretical-analytical and historical-critical knowledge of theater.

The students deal with the history, analysis, methodology, theory and aesthetics of all theatrical disciplines. These include drama, music theater, dance, performance, puppet theater and children's and youth theater. As in my place of study in Munich most of the institutes also offer many film studies seminars. After the intermediate exam you finally have the opportunity to specialize in the preferred style of theater.

Where can theater studies be studied?

Overview

Theater studies can currently be studied in Germany at the universities of Munich, Berlin (FU), Leipzig, Mainz, Lingen / Ems, Giessen and Bochum - usually with bachelor's or master's degrees. Other universities offer mixed courses of study such as media and theater studies or focus on eg dance or music theater. The contents conveyed vary at the institutes.

Before choosing an institute, you should thoroughly compare the offered seminars and decide on your interests. In any case, one can adjust to the need to read and read a whole lot of scripts and plays from all epochs. My tip: The praxisseminars are very much sought after, so every semester, every semester, is anew to be the fastest. Always worth it!

Armor for the cultural sphere

Overview

From my standpoint, I can only say: theater science was my dream study. In addition to a broad knowledge of the history, society, culture and art of the past 500 years, I have also taken the ability to work in a structured and self-responsible manner, to quickly analyze and to compose fluent texts. The career path that you follow after your studies depends on your personal preferences.

The armament to get a foothold in the cultural sphere is taught in any case during the course of studies. Activities in the field of schauspieldramaturgy, film and serial drama, theater pedagogy, theatrical and cultural criticism, press and public relations, in the publishing industry or in artistic company offices are not uncommon. Since theater science does not have an exact job, the possibilities are manifold. Where one ends up finally also depends - as mentioned at the outset - very strongly from the internships and student jobs, which one makes. Only by trying out while working in different sectors of the theater, film, television, publishing house etc. can one find in the exclusion procedure, what fits and what does not.

What will become of theater scholars?

Overview

And this has finally come out of my five dearest fellow students: journalist at the South German, radio and synchronsprecher, employees at various film festivals, actors and employees at an artists' agency. I myself became independent as a freelance journalist and now work as a freelance editor for different online magazines, regularly organize fashion events with theatrical elements and am on the presidency of a small publishing house.

In the field of theater studies, diversity is the winner. Have fun choosing a career! Because education definitely helps - always!
