Students have access to the teacher and classmates synchronously, asynchronously, or both. Online classes typically are term-based, but some may be offered in a self-paced format.
Come immerse yourself in Shakespeare! Get to know the Bard and his plays as never before by participating in this unique cross disciplinary graduate certificate program that combines courses from the Department of Theatre & Dance and the Department of English at the beautiful University of Colorado Boulder.
Experience a vital mix of performance and scholarship by taking an online (or on-campus) three-credit graduate-level Shakespeare survey course and then visiting campus for a two-week intensive during the Colorado Shakespeare Festival to learn from the nationally recognized CSFcompany members and English and Theatre & Dance faculty in small experiential groups. Earn the remaining six credits during this summer visit through immersion in acting, directing, stage combat, Elizabethan culture, Shakespeare in film, rehearsal visits, play attendance, classes on how to teach Shakespeare, and more. Self-directed reading and a final paper are the conclusion of the certificate requirements. Extend your Shakespeare experience by applying the earned certificate core requirements to the upcoming Master's degree in Applied Shakespeare.
