This innovative programme - the only one of its kind in Scotland - offers just that, giving you the scientific theory and specialist skills that will inspire you to push the frontiers of dance and dance education.

As you study the science relevant to dance performance and education, you will have access to resources at:

Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences
Human Performance Science group

Through a multi-disciplinary blend of theory and practice, you will learn to prepare dancers to improve performance, explore the physiological and developmental issues that relate to dance education and training, and develop awareness of changing trends.

The programme is offered as:

Master of Science, which can be completed over 12 months (full time) or 24-72 months (part time)
Postgraduate diploma, which can be completed over 9 months (full time) or 12-48 months (part time)

Dance Science & Education with teaching pathway to registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS):
Many dance teachers work in school and community contexts, however, it is a legal requirement for any teacher teaching in the Scottish state school system to be registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS). Being registered not only allows an individual to teach but it also provides assurances to employers, parents and children that teachers meet a national standard of teaching.

The MSc Dance Science and Education now has a teaching pathway to registration with the GTCS, which was accredited in June 2015. On successful completion of this degree students are recommended by the University to the GTCS for provisional registration. Upon completion of the required probationary period of teaching graduates from this degree will further register with the GTCS as a teacher with a subject specialism in dance. This is currently the only route to GTCS registration as a teacher for dance specialists qualified to teach learners aged 3-18 years in schools.

The programme is offered as a Master of Science (SCQF level 11) and can be completed over 15 months (full time) or 24 months (part time). It is not available as a Postgraduate diploma.

Programme structure

Your learning will incorporate a variety of approaches including lectures, student-led seminars, presentations and, where appropriate, practical skills training and project work.

Compulsory courses:

Dance Pedagogy
Preventive Dance Medicine
Research Methods x 3

Study the ethical and legal issues that arise in medical and healthcare practice, and produce a significant piece of independent research work in your Major Project.

Overview

Medical law and ethics is a fascinating field of study as advances in research and new technologies shift the boundaries of medicine. New health issues are continually emerging and patient rights are increasingly taking centre stage. Complex medico-legal dilemmas are arising in healthcare practice and in the relationships between patients and healthcare professionals. You’ll find that many of the issues we cover on this course are highly topical.

Over the course of two years, you’ll explore the moral problems faced by medical and healthcare professionals, learn about issues that may raise legal liability in these areas, and reflect upon the legal, social and ethical context in which healthcare law is situated.

Our optional modules will allow you to tailor the course to your own particular interests. You’ll be able to explore these in greater depth in your Major Project, by undertaking a significant piece of independent research in your chosen topic.

You’ll benefit from working with students from medical, healthcare and legal backgrounds who will bring different experiences and viewpoints to the subject.

Delivered in short, intensive blocks of teaching, this part-time course is accessible to busy medical and legal professionals. It's taught jointly by staff from by Anglia Law School and our Faculty of Medical Science, reflecting its inter-professional ethos.

See the website http://www.anglia.ac.uk/study/part-time/medical-law-and-ethics

Careers

If you’re working in the medical or healthcare fields and want to move into a more senior position, our course will help to enhance your CV. By developing specialist academic expertise in the field of medical law you’ll broaden your knowledge and understanding of the legal and ethical context in which you work.

Our course will also provide a sound basis for continuing your studies at PhD level, particularly if you have a law degree.
