Course content

Create fictional worlds and use everyday situations to tell stories through the mediums of drama and creative writing in order to inspire young people, spark their imaginations and aid their social and emotional development.

By studying literary texts, performance pedagogy and theatre in education, you will develop innovative approaches to the teaching of drama and creative writing in a range of educational and community settings. You will challenge young learners to create powerful and transformative imaginary worlds to spark their creativity.

This course will help you to become a creative educator, who places students at the centre of their learning through the creation of lived-through drama experiences, cultivating a fertile ground for your creative writing and a supportive environment in which young people will feel encouraged to also write creatively.

Working with an experienced team of published educators and theatre-based organisations in Leeds, you will develop the confidence and skills to work with and inspire young people.

You will also have the opportunity to study an option module from one of our other masters courses.
