How You Study

MA Theatre is taught across the academic year through lectures, seminars, group workshops and blended learning strategies utilising facilities including the performance studios of the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, BlackBoard's online learning environment and the latest digital technologies allowing us to engage diverse learners through a variety of means.In between scheduled sessions, students are expected to engage in self-directed study, supported by academic staff, which includes allocated and autonomously researched journal articles, book chapters and relevant journalism, as well as watching video content and engaging with other materials, often suggested or made accessible through each module's online learning site. Students also undertake regular formative assignments that are not assessed as part of their final grade, but are designed to have significant benefits to their learning.

How You Are Assessed

Modules are assessed by a combination of written essay, critical portfolio, student blog, funding form, prospective journal article, panel discussion, individual and group presentation and/or focused practical workshop or performance. Student progress is subject to continuous assessments on all modules in the programme in addition to final assessed outputs. Assessment will focus on: demonstration of practical and theoretical engagement with research; articulation and demonstration of knowledge regarding a wide range of theatre performance; critical enquiry and analysis; and contextualising students' own work and the work of others within the field of historical or contemporary performance practice and scholarship.

Students on the MA Theatre play an active role in choosing the focus and, in some cases, even the modes of their assessments in consultation with relevant module tutors and in ways that align with their individual career goals. This practice embraces the University of Lincoln's core ethos of ‘Student as Producer’ by empowering postgraduate students to shape and take ownership of their learning.
