Programme objectives

In the continuing Master’s programme, emphasis is placed on augmenting students’ knowledge of choreography in practice and the professional sphere, which is essential for successful mastery of the practical skills and knowledge of a choreographer.

Profile of a programme graduate

Graduates of the continuing Master’s programme in Choreography acquire practical knowledge in their specialisation as well as an overview of the history and theory of dance, in particular in its artistic form. They have an idea of the contemporary conception of the art of dance and dance composition, both domestically and abroad; they are familiar with the main currents, creators and works of the past and present.

Programme graduates possess broad knowledge of the history, theory, concepts and methods of the art of dance and the selected field, and they know how to apply this knowledge in artistic/creative dance practice.

They know how to seek out, classify and interpret information or sources of inspiration relevant for addressing a specific problem or for creating an artistic project, production, festival, tour and the like.

They are able to transact within the scope of their specialist knowledge and skills in at least one foreign language. They are able to independently acquire additional specialist knowledge, skills and competencies, mainly based on their practical experience and its analysis, but also by independently studying the theoretical findings of the field.

Graduates of the continuing Master’s programme in Choreography can continue their studies in related doctoral programmes with an interdisciplinary focus, e.g. on issues of theatre and film directing, multimedia, performance studies, or on theoretical issues in these and other disciplines (cultural anthropology and culturology). They are ready to become involved in interdisciplinary artistic projects and their theoretical reflection.
