Course Summary

Our MA Storytelling is an innovative new master's degree which takes storytelling as a creative practice, with the storytelling practitioner at its core.

The focus of the programme is on applied storytelling, which is the use and application of storytelling within contexts of community-building, personal and professional development, and policy formation. It builds on our international reputation for research in applied storytelling relating to areas of health, the environment, education and social justice. The programme offers you the opportunity to develop as storytelling practitioners and work alongside researchers on existing projects in the UK and overseas. Find out more.

MA Storytelling is taught through the Storytelling Academy in the School of Design and Creative Arts at Loughborough and is suitable for anyone wishing to develop their own storytelling practice. We anticipate that the degree will bring together students with an exciting and diverse range of experiences of areas such as storytelling, performance, art, writing, teaching and education, heritage and museum work, journalism, healthcare, NGO and international development work and community programme management, among many others.

The PG Certificate consists of a selection of modules from the MA programme, but now made available through online/remote delivery, making the PG Certificate ideal for students who, for whatever reason, may be unable to relocate to Loughborough at the present time, or to commit to full-time postgraduate study, but would value a postgraduate award as part of their continuing professional development, achieved through a part-time route.

Students who successfully complete the PG Certificate will be eligible to transfer onto the MA programme, if they so wish, and complete the additional credits to graduate with a master’s qualification.

Modules

This module builds directly on the Research Methods for Theatre / Storytelling module, providing an opportunity to put the methods discovered in the former module into practice. The primary aim is to discover how these methods might influence, extend and enable new practice and scholarship.
