Our unique Theatre Practice postgraduate programmes cover practice-based work in theatre and can be taken either as an MA, full-time over 1 year or part-time over 2 years, or as a 2-year full-time MFA.
The MA and MFA are divided into a number of flexible pathways. You can specialise in an area of your choice by following a specific pathway, select modules from different pathways to tailor an individual programme, or even take a module from outside Drama to complement the range of enquiry. All pathways are taught by leading academics in one of the largest and best equipped Drama departments in the country.
The programmes appeal to a range of prospective students: practitioners who want to develop their practice; graduates who are planning a career in arts education (schools, colleges, universities); and those who want to look more in depth into aspects of drama they have enjoyed and benefitted from through undergraduate studies.
As a student enrolled on one of these programmes, you will develop skills and techniques to further your vocational career, theoretical knowledge which will enrich and enhance your creative work, as well as the ability to critically interrogate your performance practice.
The Drama Research pathway
The Drama Research pathway will develop your skills in research into drama, theatre and performance. It has been designed to offer specialised preparation for students intending to go on to study for an MPhil or PhD research degree.
Work is carried out one-to-one with your supervisor and in small research groups. You will develop skills in research methodologies, including using bibliographical, archive and research resources. Individual guidance will enable you to frame original research questions and to communicate your ideas to peers and the wider scholarly community.
