On our Education and Drama course you examine these concepts in detail, debating politics and philosophies of education, exploring different approaches to staging and devising theatre, and discussing how both education and theatre operate in contemporary society in light of their complex cultural histories.You explore the ways in which drama can be used to enhance learning and break down barriers, and how education addresses topics such as gender, representation, truth, power, and citizenship. The breadth of this course offers opportunities to engage with society’s important discussions around the purpose and value of education, and the place of drama in the 21st century.In Year 1, you discover a wide range of educational themes, concepts, ideas and issues in the Educators module, together with an introduction to academic writing and practice in Literacies in Higher Education. In Drama, core modules include Theatre Histories and Making, in which you explore drama in the context of its history and politics and the ways in which texts and performances are viewed and interpreted. You will also undertake Performance Analysis and Critical Viewing.In Years 2 and 3, Education Studies modules such as Education: Social and Political Thought develop your knowledge of a variety of educational theories and perspectives which you use as tools for critical analysis and practical application. Drama modules extend your practical and critical skills in exploring an Artist Specialism, Ways of Seeing, Ways of Working, and more.In the final-year Group Project, you have the opportunity to create small companies to make a major performance or develop an applied theatre-in-education project, or focus on performance analysis more theoretically. You can choose to write a dissertation focused on education, or one applied to drama – either theoretical or hands-on practice. Optional modules further allow you to develop critical understanding of education from more specific angles, such as philosophy, culture, disability studies, film, and more.The variation of assessments and modules in this combination ensures the development of a range of transferable skills including clear communication and presentation skills and analytical thinking.
