Drama Education with English Language Teaching

This new Master's degree is underpinned by research into the role of drama in ELT. This research shows that Drama motivates students, creates confidence in speaking, uses language in cultural contexts with purpose and can improve teacher-student relationships. This course is suitable for experienced teachers interested in combining both disciplines (Drama and English Language Teaching) at Master's level. The course is particularly suitable for teachers of English as a Foreign Language who have interest in drama as a key way of promoting learning and language acquisition in a more creative and personalised way.
