About the course

Storytelling is no longer restricted to verbal replays - emotions can be invoked, and a narrative shared, using a wide variety of different formats. The focus of the MA Storytelling programme is on applied storytelling, which is the use and application of storytelling within contexts of community-building, personal and professional development, and policy formation.

This is an innovative Master's degree which takes storytelling as a creative practice, with the storytelling practitioner at its core. It builds on our international reputation for research in applied storytelling relating to areas of health, the environment, education and social justice. The programme offers you the opportunity to develop as storytelling practitioners and work alongside researchers on existing projects in the UK and overseas.
