MA in Drama and Theatre Education

Designed to help you develop your practical skills and theoretical knowledge of drama education, this MA is aimed at practitioners working in both schools and colleges, and community and educational theatre settings.

There is a balance between the study and practice of drama as a subject in schools and colleges, and the wider use of drama for personal and community purposes. Teaching is built around practical workshops, which give you hands-on experience of drama, as well as providing ideas and techniques for use in your own workplace.

A core module in Drama and Creative Learning explores the role of drama and theatre as a means of encouraging creative learning. Optional modules unique to this course comprise Drama and Theatre in Theory and Practice, The Role of Story in Drama and Theatre Education, and Drama and Literacy. You’ll also complete a supervised independent research project and associated dissertation.
