Entry Requirements

  • Applicants must arrange for official high school transcripts to be sent to McMaster University directly from their high school well in advance of the session to which they are applying. The equivalent of first-class standing will be required for admission consideration. Documents in a language other than English should be accompanied by notarized English translations.
  • If you have been asked to meet our English Language Proficiency requirement, you must demonstrate English language proficiency by achieving the minimum requirements as specified by McMaster.


  • The School of the Arts offers a broadly based program of study in the history, theory, and critical understanding of dramatic performance in both live and recorded media. Experiential learning in the program centers on devising, an approach that allows students to learn multiple methods for building a live performance work by taking up a broad range of cultural experiences. The program requirements provide an overview of the field at Level I, build core skills at Level II, and offer differentiated applications of skills and knowledge at Level III. Courses at Level IV synthesize and expand these skills and knowledge. Students are advised to note carefully the prerequisites for all courses and to take note of which courses are offered in alternate years.
