Course summary

The innovative Master’s in Professional Practice: Theatre and Drama Facilitation enables you to maintain your professional practice while reflecting upon and refining the skills and techniques you need to elevate your career to a more specialised or strategic level. The blended learning format of this course includes work-based and distance learning with intensive teaching blocks, so you get the benefit of arranging your study schedule along with face to face peer engagement.

Our course empowers you to:

  • rejuvenate and advance your drama facilitation practice
  • cultivate critical reflection to improve professional decision-making and contribute to your field by finding new solutions to common challenges
  • exploit appropriate analytical and project management tools to enable high-level reporting in a professional context.

In Advanced Facilitation 1 you will learn to use reflective practice to identify and improve specific aspects of your facilitation practice. Advanced Facilitation 2 focuses on workshop content; following a series of masterclasses, you will be guided in developing expertise in a specific theatre style or technique of your choice. The Critical Perspectives module enables you to develop skills in the use of existing sources of knowledge to support professional decision making whilst Enterprise, Management and Organisation considers how you 'make things happen' in your career by looking at models of funding, marketing and project management.

The specialist option modules offer you the opportunity to select a unit of study that either reflects the sector you are working in or an area in which you wish to develop expertise. The module choices reflect three broad areas of theatre facilitation: those working with young people to create theatre (Directing for and with young people); those working in outreach within a theatre organisation (Creative Learning and Outreach); and those working in socially engaged/issue based work (Difficult Discussions).
