This MA programme is designed to help you enhance and consolidate your skills as a scholar-practitioner of performance. The MA in Theatre & Performance Studies combines intensive studio-based research with rigorous academic study, and across the programme as a whole emphasises current practice; it is thus well suited to professional practitioners, graduates, teachers and all who wish to advance their creative abilities. Areas of expertise among the tutors include collaborative theatre making; modern and contemporary drama; physical theatre; live art; one-to-one performance; political theatre; writing for performance; applied theatre; and theatre in education.
The MA is taught primarily in the School's fully-equipped Theatre Workshop and studio spaces, and in the Universit's publicly licensed Drama Studio. We also have excellent facilities for sound recording and sound and film editing.
