Dissertation (DRAM080)

60 credits

This module offers you a space in which to develop your individual research in an area of deep personal interest that you would like to extend through an advanced research project. The area of research can be linked to your career plans for post-graduation employment, to further and more advanced study; it can be a new area for research or something that you have previously worked on at a different level.

As the culmination of the MA, this module asks you to develop an individual research project partly through practice, or as a fully written dissertation centred on an area of your specific interest related to theatre and performance. You are encouraged to think of this module as a time to synthesise your learning across the degree, and to stretch the creative and academic skills you have acquired to the full. The dissertation module can be a useful space to consolidate or forge networks and connections beyond the University in a variety of fields through placement, fieldwork, workshop or teaching experience, and is a space to develop your ideas and connections with a clear view to your future career.
