Course Summary

The MA by Research (Drama, Theatre and Dance) is a flexible programme that allows you to undertake in-depth study (both full and part-time), under the supervision of international experts, on a broad range of subjects, including cultural studies, drama, theatre studies, dance studies, performance studies or comparative topics. The core of the MA by Research is a 25,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choosing, intended to give you the scope to explore your area of interest in real depth and to develop sophisticated critical and analytical research and writing skills.

You will also complete a research-focused, taught module which will equip you with a range of theoretical and historical approaches to the study of the arts, enabling you to articulate, refine and persistently test your approach to your chosen topic within this broader theoretical and methodological framework. Our graduates are highly employable and recent years they have entered many different fields, including international management, consultancy, sales and marketing, media and publishing, banking, the arts, politics, the Civil Service, teaching, and travel and tourism. This course also equips you with a solid foundation for continued PhD studies.

Entry requirements

Students need to have 2:1 in a relevant subject or overseas equivalent, or relevant professional qualifications and relevant experience in an associated area. Normally we require a UK 2:1 (Honours) or equivalent in relevant subjects but we will consider high 2:2 or relevant work experience. Candidates with professional qualifications in an associated area may be considered. Where a ‘good 2:2’ is considered, we would normally define this as reflecting a profile of 57% or above.
