Dance Science

The MSc Dance Science is taught by some of the leading researchers in this field and is designed for graduates or those individuals with recent, relevant professional dance experience who wish to extend their understanding and use of dance science within a range of challenging and exciting professional and academic settings. You will undertake a range of taught modules and independent study which will focus on you developing an in-depth understanding of the symbiotic relationship between science and art within dance. The University of Wolverhampton is the only UK institution that offers separate modules in applied physiology, biomechanics and psychology at this level. You will be supported by a supervisor throughout your studies to develop your knowledge and research skills allowing you to apply this information to vocational opportunities in dance. You will develop advanced research skills including problem-solving, reflective practice and the ability to critically interpret and apply evidence, developing you as a reflective, evidence-based practitioner and researcher.

Entry requirements

MSc: You will need a good honours degree in a dance related subject or relevant subject area and/or 5 years professional dance experience. Applicants from overseas should also have a good standard of written and spoken English (normally IELTS 6.5 or equivalent).

Assessment methods

You will study a variety of modules which can help you develop skills unique to your situation. You will study Strength and Conditioning (applied physiology), Performance Psychology, Biomechanics and Research Methods before undertaking independent research in the form of Professional Practice (Dance Science support) and Dissertations. Each taught module on the course is one-week intensive and delivered during August (3 modules) and January (2 modules), which means you can plan your study effectively around your job, children and regular commitments.
