Course summary

Our growing drama community offers opportunities to engage in a rich programme of talks and workshops from visiting lecturers/companies and you will benefit from our close links with local professional theatres and festivals.

Postgraduate research in drama enables you to benefit from the expertise of research active staff with a wide range of knowledge in areas including: devising; writing for performance; acting; immersive and participatory theatre; theatrical adaptation; multimedia performance; classical theatre; site-related performance; theatre and education and applied theatre.

As a postgraduate researcher you will be supported by staff members who have a wide range of research interests and professional experience in the drama subject area; and you will draw on their experience of a variety of research epistemologies and methodologies, including creative approaches and practice as research. You will have the opportunity to attend national and international conferences and to present your work and ideas as your research develops. You will gain support to submit your work for publication.

Our Research students are part of a growing drama community in the School of Arts offering opportunities for collaborating with other drama students at all levels.

If you are interested in practice as research you will be able to present your performance work in our new studio facilities at the Oxstalls campus, which include a multimedia theatre studio, and black box and white box spaces. You will also have the opportunity to stage your performance work at our partner professional venues.
