Creative Arts in Education
The creative arts provide opportunities for developing creative and aesthetic understanding, finding a personal and communal voice within different cultural contexts, and are linked to improvements in academic achievement.
This specialism will help you encourage creativity via the arts, understand the variety of roles the arts in education might take, and consider how arts teaching can benefit other areas of the curriculum and promote inclusion. Unique in integrating approaches to drama, music, dance and visual art, this MA includes visits to schools and venues such as galleries, as well as interactions with key cultural organisations. You may also specialise in a particular art form.
