Course summary

Programme description

Applied Theatre is an umbrella term referring inclusively to any form of theatre practice seeking to engage of intervene in social, educational and/or community contexts.

Our pioneering PhD Applied Theatre doctoral programme is specifically designed for people working in applied theatre who want to undertake advanced research which builds on their professional knowledge and practice.

The structure of the programme is devised to enable you to develop your career while simultaneously undertaking a research project that leads to a doctoral qualification.

This professional practice-focused doctorate aims to engage experienced professionals in advanced research, and reflects the need for structured forms of professional development and reflective practice across the arts sector.

The programme takes explicit account of the professional practice-base of the student, integrating this as a central knowledge base for the research project, and supporting the development of dynamic knowledge outcomes that can have an impact across academic and non-academic contexts.

We support the development of reflective practice that can respond to and influence the complex unpredictable and shifting social and cultural contexts within which theatre practitioners operate.

The programme will introduce you to a range of dynamic and challenging concepts and methods with which to reflect critically and constructively on your professional practice.
