Course summary

Course overview

The freedom to place your own practice is at the centre of this Applied Theatre programme. Whilst our specialist modules provide you with the opportunity to develop new skills and techniques in different locations and contexts, the central focus will be on your individual practice.

Throughout the programme, you will develop your professional profile within the growing field of applied theatre, building on your existing skills and knowledge. You will do this by engaging with a range of applied and community-based projects which are run by York St John University.

This is central to the programme and includes workshop and project opportunities with established partners and locations in the wider community.

A particular focus of the programme is on working with mental health services in the area. We have an established relationship with local mental health service providers and our 'Converge' project works in partnership with the NHS to deliver courses in theatre and other arts. You will have the opportunity to run these courses and workshops for mental health users as part of your studies.
