MA in Drama 
The acceptance of dissertation proposals for the MA in Drama is dependent on the availability of a suitable supervisor. Areas of specialised research in the department include:

  •  Theatre Making
  •  Directing for the Theatre
  •  Performance Studies
  •  Theatre and Media studies
  •  Educational and Applied Drama
  •  Theatre Voice Practise

The department welcomes all enquiries as the possibility of joint supervision with other departments allows for a much broader range of theoretical enquiries than the areas of specialisation suggested above. 

Programme Structure:
The dissertation may be visually supported if appropriate. In selected cases, subject to approval by the Head of Department, partial fulfilment of the dissertation may be in the form of the production of a play, or a performance, or other forms of practical work. The weighting given to each component must be agreed prior to registration with the Head of Department.

In addition, partial fulfilment of the degree may be met by such written examination(s) as are appropriate to the area of study. The weighting of this would not constitute more than 20% of the final assessment. 

Admission requirements:
An Honours degree in Drama, or a four-year degree of Honours equivalence or in the absence of Drama Honours, equivalent experience / expertise / alternative degree(s).
