Contemporary Performance Practices at Ulster UniversityMake an Enquiry
An interdisciplinary, practice-focused MA in performance supported by rich curriculum of critical and cultural perspectives
The MA programme is made up of taught modules with a value of 120 credit points and an MA research project module. The programme had been designed with one exit point, a Postgraduate Diploma. PGDip students must complete successfully the taught modules.
The programme's structure is anchored in the compulsory Approaches to Contemporary Performance Practice modules. These engage you in a range of aesthetic, critical and theoretical paradigms and practical processes for the creation of performance, underpinned by the integration of theory and practice as modes of inquiry. Alongside these, a second strand of modules develop your ability to engage with contemporary industrial processes and economic and social contexts.
Choice is a key motivating factor in allowing you to develop an individual programme of study to support your strengths and aspirations. Within modules, you negotiate aspects of your inquiry and, as appropriate, the modes and focus of assessment tasks and project briefs. The final Independent Project for those progressing to Masters level allows you to develop a practice-based or book-based project that is tailored to your interests and matched to your career ambitions.
You are empowered to take responsibility for your learning as a reflective practitioner, building a foundation to excel in the creative industries sector. We are responsive to the needs of the individual student and the sector, by providing high quality learning experiences that exploit the significant networks of practice of which staff are members to connect with partner organisations to enhance student employability.
