Course content

The Master in Arts, Health and Performance offers a stimulating programme with a unique blend of academic study and practice.

We know that lives are busy, so we designed the course to be taught through a combination of intensive in person sessions, online interactive and self-directed teaching, as well as group and individual tutorials. Our programme will equip you with highly employable skills and advanced knowledge base to critically understand and navigate related fields both as an individual and in your professional role(s).
This multi-disciplinary Masters course examines the potential of arts, performance science and artistic practice to enhance health, wellbeing, education/training and performance. Theories, research and practice within disciplines of psychology, philosophy, sociology, physiology and pedagogy will be related to elite and participatory/inclusive arts contexts. There is engagement with research and practice throughout the programme and there is an opportunity to develop an independent research project that can take different forms such as practice/performance-based or lab-based.
The course is taught by a team of experienced academics and practitioners that have had professional careers in a related sector and/or are internationally recognised researchers in the field. A group of non-academic partners and advisors also contribute to the delivery of the programme, in the forms of visiting talks, debates and discussions, contributing to assignment briefs, and offering networking opportunities.
Our course is unique in that it is delivered alongside multiple degree routes in the broader Creative and Cultural Industries subject areas, which enables you to have a multi and interdisciplinary learning experience and meet and collaborate with a range of creative professionals.
