University of Wolverhampton
The MA Drama course produces graduates who possess a systematic understanding and a critical and creative awareness of practice and theory at the forefront of the discipline; during the course, students critically evaluate the current practice and theories and apply a comprehensive range of techniques to develop their own work; students develop an understanding of philosophies of performance and consider the ethical implications of performance practice; students investigate a line of experimental performance practices that inform and define the discipline; students are given opportunities to apply knowledge in original ways, for instance through a significant individual research project which can include a practical component.
Applicants need a good degree (2.2 or above) in Drama, Performance, Theatre Studies or a related subject; applicants from overseas should also have a good standard of written and spoken English (normally IELTS 6.5 or equivalent); all students are interviewed to assess their suitability and preparedness for the course; candidates are considered with a significant track record of professional experience in a relevant field, but without a BA (Hons) degree; to do this, non-standard applicants in this category are interviewed, and may be asked to produce a piece of written work as a means of assessing their suitability.
Modules include: Advanced performance making; performance: body, space and identity; advanced research methods and professional practice.
