We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Dance cover a wide range of topics associated with physical performance art. Practical courses focus on techniques and choreography. Theoretical programmes may also explore the history and cultural significance of Dance styles.
Postgraduate programmes in this area often award specialised MFA (Master of Fine Arts) degrees, but more conventional Masters such as the MA and MRes are also available, along with shorter PGCert and PGDip courses.
These programmes are usually designed for specialised postgraduates and may require practical experience in addition to appropriate undergraduate qualifications.
That said, a Masters in Dance may lead to a wider range of career paths than you might think. Courses may equip you for work as a professional dancer, but you could just as easily lean towards related roles in choreography, stage management, dance production or related roles within the performing arts.
Other opportunities are more widespread. Dance education is featured on many school curricula, with an accompanying need for skilled teachers at various levels.
The historical and cultural significance of Dance is also a vibrant area of academic research, with the potential for further work at PhD level and beyond.
