Course Summary

The MA Choreography and Professional Practices programme invites students to examine innovative and experimental approaches to choreographic practice, research and scholarship. It provides you with time and space to explore choreographic dance practices and methods of research, experimentation and innovation i.e. improvisation methods / techniques, somatic approaches, developing new movement vocabularies, collaboration and devising to develop your own artistic voice. Learning is assessed using various methods chosen as the most appropriate for demonstrating achievement of the learning outcomes for each module. All modules are assessed by means of programme work in the form of practical choreography presentations, essays, reports, presentations, learning journals, portfolios, online tasks and group working. Students are expected to carry out an independent research project on a topic relevant to the field of choreography. For this module students are supported through seminar sessions and tutorials during the two semesters so that they can develop research skills which are essential for lifelong learning, career flexibility; and for professional practice as well as for personal and professional development. In addition, students have the option to become involved in a number of collaborative projects through which they can, as part of the degree, develop project management, time management and interpersonal team work skills. The MA in Choreography and Professional Practices will equip you for a range of careers in choreography, performing arts, dance development, arts administration, performance, teaching or dance research. It will also prepare you for further study i.e. PhD or professionally-related qualifications.
