Programme description

As we understand it and try to do, Performance Studies are research on all kinds of representations and their culturally changing frames. We see it as a field of multiple possibilities, the desire to capture the dynamics and variability of individual and collective experiences in their various manifestations. We operate in two ways: on the one hand, we constantly renew our theatrical and dramatological knowledge, confronting it with the latest achievements of practitioners and methodological proposals; on the other hand, we try to apply this knowledge to the study of extra-theatrical phenomena: from collective acts (public ceremonies, games, holidays, rituals) through individual experiences, to relationships between human and inhuman.

An essential part of study programme is workshops, during which the participants, under the supervision of specialists, work on the implementation of independently proposed projects of a curatorial, artistic, scientific or translation nature. Our offer is a programme of the future! Come and join us!

Student’s life

Time spent at the university is not all about education and class participation; it is also an excellent opportunity to develop hobbies and interests. Many research societies and student organizations operate at the Jagiellonian University, including faculty- and university-wide ones. These societies allow students to spend their free time actively, gain knowledge, develop their talents, participate in engaging, unconventional projects, go on research and team-building trips, participate in conferences, and meet fellow students outside the lecture halls. There are many student associations at the Faculty of Polish Studies, f. e. Performative Academic Circle.

Students interested in the international dimension of studying can participate in a wide variety of exchange programmes, such as Erasmus+, Utrecht Network, bilateral exchange programmes, European university Una Europa, or the domestic mobility programme called MOST.

Graduates

Performance Studies respond to the growing demand of the labour market for graduates of humanities studies who, thanks to cross-cutting knowledge and practical skills, can meet various professional challenges. Our graduates find employment in various cultural institutions (theatres, galleries, museums, cultural centres) and perform professions requiring entrepreneurship and flexibility in combining multiple fields of knowledge with practical skills (journalism, advertising, foundations and social associations and international corporations). Students often treat these studies as a crucial stage to further education in the artistic, curatorial or scientific fields.
