Vision and Values Statement

The MA in Drama and Performance Studies is aimed at graduates whose wish to work in theatre, the cultural sector, media, education and /or research, and attracts those who are passionate about analysing, exploring, and reflecting deeply on modern and contemporary theatre and performance within their broad cultural, societal, and political contexts. By exploring the various complex interfaces between creative and critical practices, this programme will add greater depth, knowledge and value to the existing skills sets of our students.

Our programme’s unique and purposeful learning environments comprise seminars, laboratory sessions, master classes, research seminars, international field trips, work placements and supervised research. Students and their lecturer/tutors work together in a spirit of mutual inquiry, reflection, experiment, discussion and debate. Dedicated onsite facilities allow students the opportunities to engage in practice as research and present findings/presentations in studio settings.

As our pedagogic ethos emphasizes the hybridity and complementarity of theory and practice, the palette of assessment strategies is purposefully broad, testing and rewarding. Assessments include essays, class presentations, theatre reviews, performance analysis, practice-based studio presentations, portfolios, guided independent research practice / production, reflective journals, playwriting/dramaturgical exercises, as well as minor thesis/ practice-as-research projects.

The final dissertation comprising a minor thesis or thesis project, is where innovative methodologies, creative propositions and analytic originality are guided and supported by experienced academic staff /supervisors. Core values, such as independence, creativity, collaboration, critical reflection, cultural engagement, invariably play to the strengths and inclinations of our student cohort. Such a stakeholder sensibility generates commitments to the flourishing, empowerment, constructive challenging, and enrichment of yourself and other citizens.
