Course summary

About our programmes

Drama at Hull has a strong reputation for world-leading and internationally excellent research. We offer supervision of research degrees at MA by Thesis and PhD level in a wide range of subjects, reflecting both the individual interests of staff and our research groupings in Performance, Technology and Aesthetics; Performance Translation and Dramaturgy; and Research in Engagement and Participation.

Your research might take the traditional form of a wholly written thesis, or might be based on experimental practice supplemented by written critical commentary and other forms of documentation. Either way, you have the opportunity to expand your own knowledge, and that of the subject area, through original research in a form tailored to your needs, under expert guidance. We have three well-equipped performance studios – all with backstage facilities, including dressing rooms, control rooms, a design workshop, and costume and prop stores. Students also benefit from visits by speakers, trips to see performances and professional touring theatre, dance and music performances.
