No Experience Necessary
Question by alldogsgotoheaven1984: What type of jobs can a MA in Theatre or a PhD in theatre get me?
-What type of jobs can a MA in theatre or even a PhD in Theatre allow me to do?
-Will any of them allow me to be a college professor of theatre?
-Are theatre degrees as bad as people say (which is mostly people saying they aren’t useful to have)?
Answer by .
They really are bad, most graduate-level degrees will limit the available jobs too since simpler jobs wouldn’t want to pay that much more for an overqualified person. You’ll also be competing against other very high achieving individuals for those jobs.
You certainly can be a college professor of theatre, but you’ll likely face VERY HARSH competition.
Being positive about what you have is great, but often being overly optimistic will lead you to make very poor choices. This is one of those examples. The possibility of something great coming from pursuing a MA or PhD in theatre is disastrously low.
