Description

Advertisement

The MA Dance Cultures programme provides an intellectual and cultural framework from which to build on academic qualifications and dance experience, and it extends the knowledge and understanding of dance to national and international developments in the field of the arts.

The Departments leading reputation stems from its expertise in dance research, analysis and professional practice. The degree therefore provides students from diverse dance backgrounds with exciting opportunities to discuss and share ideas with both artists and scholars. With access to key archival and studio resources, this relationship between the theoretical and practical enables Surrey students to build further on individual dance knowledge.

Professional development of the dance graduate is another key to advancing an understanding of arts and cultural leadership and we provide individual internships at cultural and dance organisations supported by visits from tutors. The Department provides exciting opportunities to collaborate with students from other disciplines; for example, Dance and Theatre students come together in some of the modules.

There are also opportunities to engage with the Departments PhD students through regular seminars and bi-yearly research weeks.
