Program Overview

Program Description:

Our MA Applied Theatre course is for those interested in using theatre in community and education settings or with people whose lives have been affected by the criminal justice system. This course encourages investigation into the possibilities and contradictions of applied theatre and drama as transformative and rehabilitative, and engages with a range of theories and practices.

This course provides an opportunity to explore applied theatre via one of two specialist pathways: Drama in the Community and Drama Education or Drama and the Criminal Justice System. Each pathway is designed to support current practice at work, or a particular field of interest in applied theatre and drama.

Students will develop their own practice and scholarship, learn key practices in applied theatre, engage with new ideas in the field, undertake project-based study examining specific professional work with a range of client groups, or specialise in working with people whose lives have been affected by the criminal justice system.

The course receives substantial support from The Leverhulme Trust. This unique funding of over £60,000 a year (from September 2016) is specifically to enable both MA and BA applied theatre students to undertake projects and placements in the UK and abroad.
