Course content

Our master's in Storytelling is an innovative new MA degree which takes storytelling as a creative practice, with the storytelling practitioner at its core.

The focus of our MA Storytelling degree is on Applied Storytelling, which is the use and application of storytelling within contexts of community-building, personal and professional development, and policy formation. It builds on our international reputation for research in Applied Storytelling relating to areas of health, the environment, education and social justice and offers students the opportunity to develop as storytelling practitioners and work alongside researchers on existing projects in the UK and overseas

Who should study this programme?

A master's in Storytelling is suitable for anyone wishing to develop their own storytelling practice. We anticipate that the degree will bring together students with an exciting and diverse range of experiences of areas such as storytelling, performance, art, writing, teaching and education, heritage and museum work, journalism, healthcare, NGO and international development work and community programme management, among many others.
