Course summary

This practice-based course gives you the opportunity to develop advanced skills in the use of theatre in participatory, community and social contexts. Through workshops, studio practice and community based projects, you will develop compositional, reflective and research strategies that will help develop your practice and portfolio.

Course overview

Focus on exploring and developing your creativity. Study a range of techniques and theories on specialist modules and engage with various communities, including health, education or developmental settings. Your individual practice will be at the centre of everything you do.

You will grow your professional profile in the field of applied theatre by engaging in a range of well established local, regional and national partnership projects, adding new skills and experiences to your repertoire.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching will consist of a mixture of group seminars and individual tutorials. The additional tutorial hours attached to each module will be used flexibly, including a wider range of staff input from tutors not timetabled to deliver taught contact.

As a graduate student independent learning will be central to your study. We place a significant emphasis on independent learning. You will be encouraged to take responsibility for your role in managing your own learning and its outcomes. Our Academic Support team can help with written English, study, research and technology skills if needed.

Career outcomes

This postgraduate degree could lead you to a career directly related to working in the theatre industry, or it could take you in a completely different direction, using the many transferrable skills you will develop.

This will give you an advantage in careers such as:

  • Teaching
  • Setting up your own company
  • Freelance director
  • Arts projects with refugees and migrants
  • Arts work with people with learning disabilities
  • Creative work in schools and pupil referral units
