The MA by Research in Performing Arts offers an exciting new opportunity for students to study at Masters level, following an area of their own academic interest and under the supervision of published experts in their fields. You will be able pursue innovative experience of performing arts practices with the integral development of research and writing skills, self-direction and autonomy, working in, and across, disciplines that include dance, drama, music or musical theatre. You will have the opportunity to achieve a range of subject-specific outcomes, through acquiring an advanced knowledge of concepts, and critically evaluating theories, problems and performing techniques.

As this course is taught by supervision, we are able to work flexibly with students to arrange tutorials around their work and family commitments. Also, in the absence of taught classes, it would be quite possible to conduct tutorials and exchange draft work and tutor feedback electronically, so there is considerable scope to study conveniently from home.
