Theatre and Performance

Our MA by research programmes are designed for graduates who want to prepare for doctoral study either by integrating creative practice with theoretical or historical work, or through traditional academic research. One third of the programme comprises taught modules, while two thirds are given over to a continuous overarching research project. Students take 3 taught modules (2 compulsory modules and a third module relating to their specialised subject). Students will have strong supervisor support throughout the course and will be involved in regular group seminars during the first two academic terms.
