Course content

The MA is jointly run by The Workshop Theatre and the Centre for Global Development. It is aimed primarily at either those working in community-based theatre and wishing to explore discourses of development or development practitioners seeking to investigate how the arts can be used as a tool for development. Three core modules are offered, two in The Workshop Theatre and one in the Centre for Global Development. Students are invited to choose a fourth module in Development Studies to reflect their primary interests and aims. There are opportunities for practical work and for creating links with professional workers in the field.
