27 April, 2022

Performers College is delighted to announce that from September 2022 we will be offering two new courses: MA Performing Arts and MA Learning and Teaching in the Creative Industries. This allows graduates the opportunity to take their education to the next level.

College Principal Tracey Lee said: “I am passionate about nurturing the future of all talented graduates who wish to continue to develop their knowledge and practical skills. Performers College is extremely committed to shaping the wonderful work of the new MA students, they will be allowed the freedom to pursue many areas of interest whilst studying”

MA Performing Arts

Through research-based practice, this new MA puts you and your aspirations at the centre of your learning, whilst refining your chosen specialist pathway as a Director, Performer, Choreographer or Entrepreneur.

Through four modules across the autumn and spring semesters, you will apply a theoretical lens to your own and others’ professional practice. Drawing on a broad range of performing arts research, you will be encouraged to actively investigate areas such as directing, performing, choreography and entrepreneurship within the arts industry.

The MA programme will take a person-centred approach and include a balance of expert tuition, experiential workshops, and self-guided study. You will learn to analyse your key interests, beliefs, and values and work collaboratively with your peers to expand your knowledge and develop your creative skills.

MA Learning and Teaching in the Creative Industries

There are two pathways that allow pre-career teachers and qualified teachers to enrich their understanding via a deeper theoretical and pedagogic knowledge. The aim of the course is to allow you to become a highly creative, thoughtful, and collaborative educator.

You will develop high-level knowledge and skills across a range of areas, learning to critically examine and challenge beliefs and attitudes so that you can find your own voice as an educator.

These areas include:

  • Teaching and supporting learning
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Learning theory and psychology
  • Inclusivity and accommodation for learning need
  • Creative and experiential approaches to learning
  • Educational and practitioner-led research
  • Leadership and innovation in education
