Drama and Theatre Studies (practice-based through Dramaturgy, Playwriting or Performance)

This innovative new programme allows academic research to be conducted through practical experimentation, such as the investigation of processes of theatre making or the practical application of particular aesthetic theories. It provides an opportunity for you to specialise in a particular area of practice (dramaturgy, playwriting, or performance - which includes directing) and prepares you for your chosen profession.

Entry requirements

Our requirements for postgraduate research are dependent on the type of programme you are applying for: for MRes and MA by research programmes, entry to our programmes usually requires a good (normally a 2.1 or above) Honours degree, or an equivalent qualification if you were educated outside the UK. If you are applying for a PhD then you will usually also need to hold a good Master's qualification.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on a dissertation.
