Course summary

Re?ne your existing skills and knowledge on a programme built to foster innovative, con?dent and well-prepared researchers. Bene?t from close guidance while researching 20th century or contemporary theatre, live art, and popular or interdisciplinary performance – whether through creative practice, or textual or archival study.

Graduate destinations include PhD study, professional performance/art-making, arts administration and management, research assistant, community development work and teaching in secondary and further education.

Become an independent, forward-looking, creative theatre and performance researcher, able to engage in, and respond to, the challenges of the contemporary world; Advance on a well-supported route that enables you to progress from undergraduate studies to doctoral level research in an environment that tests the boundaries, definitions and potential of performance and theatre; Acquire a sophisticated range of subject specific and transferable research skills through seminars and workshops; Focus on a specific research project in theatre and performance under the guidance of a supervisory team; Work in our dynamic, state-of-the-art performance centre, The House; Work in a department that places equal value on practice-led and traditional methods of research and their expression; Pursue a masters degree while in employment. The contact hours for the part-time ResM programme make it possible for you to work part time while you study - you don’t even need to live locally; Engage with Plymouth’s vibrant theatre and performance scene which includes Theatre Royal Plymouth, Plymouth Arts Centre, Plymouth Fringe and the Barbican Theatre, alongside performances and events hosted by the department itself; If you are making exceptional progress, you can progress directly into our PhD programme without having to complete your masters thesis.
