The MA in Drama offers students the opportunity to combine practical theatre work with complementary critical and theoretical study through a dynamic course of creative learning.
Students select to specialise either Theatre and Young People or Contemporary Theatre Practices allowing them to develop expertise and profile in one of these pathways and at the same time to benefit from taking a number of shared core modules common to both courses. Both programmes enable students to develop substantial work experience through the course’s close contacts with the profession.
Launched last year, this innovative post graduate programme is designed to enable students to engage with an advanced approach to practice against a framework of academic research, through group work, individual supervision, seminars, workshops and professional mentoring sessions. There is a focus on partnerships with the professional theatre community and students are able to form close links with directors, companies and theatre venues in the region, through work placements and production opportunities.
Drama at Worcester provides a vibrant research environment for students to develop and refine their own practice. The course is an excellent grounding for emerging theatre practitioners: directors, performers and writers. Graduating students may also follow careers in postgraduate research, lecturing or teaching, theatre administration, the media and community arts.
