Drama and Theatre Education - MA (Full-Time/Part-Time, 2019 Entry)

Designed to help develop your practical skills and theoretical knowledge of drama education, this MA is aimed at practitioners working in both schools and colleges, and community and educational theatre settings. There is a balance between the study and practice of drama as a subject in schools/colleges, and the wider use of drama for personal and community purposes.

Teaching is built around practical workshops, which give you hands-on experience of drama, as well as providing ideas and techniques for use in your own workplace. A suite of modules unique to this course is designed to reflect current developments in education and a broad range of theatre and drama work.
