MA Theatre for Community and Education
Subject to Validation by University of East Anglia
Two years (part-time)
Entry from May 2019.
Mountview’s MA in Theatre for Community and Education is an ensemble-based programme for students interested in using theatre to address social, political and educational issues in a wide range of settings.
The course is aimed at practitioners currently working in youth or community theatre, music or the creative arts or at actors and performers looking to develop and diversify their career. It is designed to allow practitioners work alongside their training.
In a society where access to the arts is at risk of being marginalized this course develops a new generation of practitioners who lead the way in breaking down barriers to culture and widen participation in the arts.
Working in a maximum cohort of 12 students you will investigate national and international, historical and established methods and theories, as well as new and emerging best practice in the field of applied theatre arts.
Learning will be both theoretical and practice-based, encouraging participation, provocation and academic reflection. Six terms will cover business and management systems, procedures and protocols, education and theatre theory and applied theatre and cultural participation.
This course will run subject to approval by UEA. This means the course is currently going through UEA’s process to confirm the course will lead to a UEA award. Course approval will take place in May 2018 and be confirmed by July 2018.
