Why this course?

The MEd Children & Young People’s Literacy, Language and Literature is suitable for students looking to pursue part-time study in this area. It's ideal for those seeking a qualification whilst working that will enhance professional practice.

This course will deepen your understanding of the complex research and practice of literacy, language and children’s literature.

You’ll explore how to give children and young people the best start in life by promoting literacy, language and literature and learn to apply different theoretical lenses, to understand practical problems.

You’ll graduate with deep knowledge of the language, literacy and literature research into what matters and for whom. You’ll also develop a diagnostic approach to which designs and interventions work, in which circumstances and why.

You'll address questions such as:

  • Why is the process of becoming literate so complex and how does it relate to spoken language development?
  • Why and how are the pathways to literacy influenced so strongly by poverty and gender?
  • How can literacy teaching be framed to empower learning in other subject disciplines, and what are the research implications?
  • What makes a ‘good’ book for children and young people, and how do creative responses to literature underpin intellectual, emotional and social wellbeing?
  • When children struggle with literacy, what can adults do to help?
  • How can professionals make schooling and the curriculum more effective for students at every stage of their school career?

Who is the course suitable for?

The course is suitable for anyone with an interest in children and young people’s literacy, language and literature, including:

  • school teachers
  • managers in the primary and secondary sector
  • education policy makers
  • speech and language therapists
  • educational psychologists
  • community education workers

Why study at Roehampton

  • Approved by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and leads to a nationally recognised professional qualification as a dramatherapist.
  • The programme is based upon the Ritual Theatre process of dramatherapy. It draws heavily on the theatrical observations of Peter Brook and the experiments of Jerzy Grotowski, as well as anthropological notions of ‘rites of passage’ and the importance of ‘myth’.
  • The opportunity to undertake an original piece of research into dramatherapy practice.
  • Taught by experienced clinical practitioners and authors of dramatherapy publications, including the editor of The Dramatherapy Journal.
  • In the Research Excellence Framework 2014, the leading national assessment of quality, 100% of the research we submitted was rated “world leading” or “internationally excellent” for its impact. 

Course summary

Become a qualified dramatherapist with this unique programme at Roehampton. It offers a practical and clinical approach, underpinned by Ritual Theatre theory, for working with others to impact healing and a positive change through drama.

The MA Dramatherapy programme at Roehampton offers unique training within the Ritual Theatre process of dramatherapy. Drawing heavily on the theatrical observations of Peter Brook and the experiments of Jerzy Grotowski, as well as anthropological notions of “rites of passage” and the importance of “myth”, the programmes offers a clearly structured developmental process for the clinical application of dramatherapy at various levels. 

On this course, you will learn to facilitate an in-depth therapeutic process for a range of client groups, and devise therapeutic performances and workshops. You will also undertake an original piece of research into dramatherapy practice. The course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and leads to a nationally-recognised professional qualification.

The programme consists of three stages, which offers a clearly structured developmental process for the clinical application of dramatherapy. In Stage One, you will be introduced to basic theatre skills and use these creatively to work with established stories and characters. This progresses into an exploration of the personal identifications that we have with stories and myths, and an understanding of the deep foundations within many cultural traditions of using ritual, drama and performance for the enhancement of health. In Stage Two, the focus moves on to employing drama and theatre processes as vehicles for exploring our own inter-personal and internal ‘dramas’. 

Stage Three is where you will conduct your own piece of practical investigation or research into the literature and theory-base of dramatherapy practice. The Dramatherapy programme will provide you with a broad range of skills enabling you to pursue your own research interests across a wide spectrum of dramatherapy practice and theory.

Content

You will study a range of topics including how to crafting therapeutic drama stories, understanding the individual and group process, Ritual Theatre, working with myths, paratheatrical explorations and the art of structure when working in dramatherapy.

Our research areas include individual dramatherapy in schizophrenia; perception and evaluation of therapeutic outcomes from therapist and client perspectives; the role of race, culture and gender; dramatherapy and “mentalisation” with borderline personality disorder and complex trauma; therapeutic scenarios and resistance; creativity and destructiveness; the dramatherapist; and the multidisciplinary team.

Alongside the experiential focus of the training, the programme also aims to develop the necessary understanding and reflective capacity required to practice as a professional dramatherapist. This is achieved through workshops, lecture series and clinical application seminars, as well as through assessed clinical placements.

Modueles

Here are examples of the modules:

Year One:

  • Human Development and Growth
  • Process Group
  • Research Methods
  • Dramatherapy Practice & Supervision

Year Two:

  • Process Group
  • Research Portfolio
  • The Ritual of Creative Expression
  • The Ritual of Exploration
  • The Ritual of Transformation

Career options

Dramatherapists are employed across the spectrum of health and social care, education and forensic services. Dramatherapists may also operate in private therapy, training and consultancy practice.

Course details

ISEN aims to enable in-service teachers, school leaders, policy leaders, and others working directly or indirectly with children with disabilities in the UK, Europe, and around the world to study across a broad spectrum of inclusion and special educational needs.

There are three core modules within the ISEN programme which you will need to complete in the first year. These modules are Cross-Cultural Issues in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, Evaluation and Policy Analysis for Inclusive Education, and Inclusion: Individual and group differences. The aims of these modules are as follows:

  • an overarching understanding of educational inclusion and SEND and associated policies;
  • frameworks for evaluating policies and practice; and
  • introductions to different SEND groupings (as conceptualised in many educational systems).
  • an exploration of the socio-cultural conceptualisations of disability and SEND practice in a global context 

Taking these three modules will give you credits for a 60 credit PGCert (ISEN), and will enable you to then follow a more specialist pathway in year 2 (PG Diploma) where you will benefit from studying on our existing programmes such as Autism, LLD (Language, Literacy and Dyslexia), and SEBD (Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties). In year 3, as an MEd student you will work towards completion of your dissertation under the supervision of University of Birmingham staff.
