Designed to help you develop your practical skills and theoretical knowledge of drama education, this MA is aimed at practitioners working in both schools and colleges, and community and educational theatre settings.

There is a balance between the study and practice of drama as a subject in schools and colleges, and the wider use of drama for personal and community purposes. Teaching is built around practical workshops, which give you hands-on experience of drama, as well as providing ideas and techniques for use in your own workplace.

A core module in Drama and Creative Learning explores the role of drama and theatre as a means of encouraging creative learning. Optional modules unique to this course comprise Drama and Theatre in Theory and Practice, The Role of Story in Drama and Theatre Education, and Drama and Literacy. You’ll also complete a supervised independent research project and associated dissertation.

Course structure

You will study four modules (30 CATS each) intended to develop your subject knowledge, pedagogical skills and understanding of drama’s cultural importance as well as its educational significance. One of these is a core module, and you must take at least two of the remaining three course specific optional modules (however most students choose to take all the specialist modules). The final element of your study will be a dissertation (60 CATS) with integrated research methods learning. This will be your individual research project, and you will receive one-to-one support from your academic supervisor.

Course delivery and learning styles

All of the modules provide a balance between practical experience of a wide range of drama and theatre practices and a planned reading programme. The weekly sessions are built around practical workshops led by the programme tutors, invited guests, and students themselves. These workshop opportunities are designed to give students a hands-on experience of drama as well as methods and ideas for using drama and theatre in their own workplace. The course is taught mainly in afternoon sessions of three hours in length.

Delivered in partnership with Queen Mary University of London, the course provides a unique opportunity to experience postgraduate life with two world-leading institutions with strong expertise in the fields of Shakespeare, Renaissance studies, performance and modern languages.

On this course you’ll find yourself at the centre of a unique initiative to engage with, critique, and develop ideas of globalisation, interdisciplinarity and translation that inform a new approach to the study of Shakespeare.

You will form a critical perspective on Shakespeare as a global cultural phenomenon — from Elizabethan England through his transformations and translations to the 21st century — as a catalyst and as a site of resistance to globalisation. You’ll also consider Shakespeare in online media and in films by internationally-acclaimed directors. The course investigates theoretical, historical, performance and pedagogical approaches to Shakespeare’s global afterlives and provides a rich mix of intellectual activity that will support you to become a Shakespearean without borders.

Your first term will be spent at London’s Queen Mary University accessing a variety of theatrical performances at venues such as Shakespeare’s Globe, Donmar Warehouse and the National Theatre, as well as visiting the many museums, libraries and archives of the capital. The second term is spent at Warwick, located close to Stratford-upon-Avon, where you can access performances at the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and the research facilities of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

This is a joint degree with Queen Mary University of London, see: http://www.qmul.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/coursefinder/courses/125726.html for further module details.
