Any graduate with an aptitude for theatre can apply for the M.P.A. Course. Experience in theatre or any performing art will be an added advantage. Eligible candidates are required to write an entrance examination of two-hour duration, consisting of objective type questions on areas related to theatre and culture. Those qualified in the written test will be called for an audition/interview at the University, where they need to write descriptive and analytical essay as one of the given topics to their experience in theatre.
For the audition/interview, candidates are expected to come prepared to discuss a full length play of their choice and also perform a dramatic passage from a play of their choice in a language of their choice.
Clearing the audition and interview is a mandatory requirement irrespective of the marks secured in the written exam. Other talents like music, dance, martial arts, drawing etc., will be an added advantage.
Eligible applicants will be required to write the entrance test with maximum marks of 70 for two sections:
Section A: will be to test the candidate’s aptitude for performance/theatre research and
Section B: will be for the candidate’s overall knowledge proficiency in the area of performance/ theatre scholarship. Section B will be having questions directed to descriptive answers.
Those qualified in the written test should attend an interview with a tentative research proposal.
