Be a part of the world’s most vibrant and largest dance department rated number one for dance research in the UK (REF 2014).*
A frontrunner in international dance research, Roehampton Dance provides an innovative international conceptualisation of Dance Studies with our new portfolio of postgraduate degrees. Our programmes celebrate diversity and speak to the imperatives of a changing dance ecology in the 21st century.
Two new degrees - MA Dance Politics and Sociology, and MA Dance Philosophy and History - introduce exciting, novel perspectives on these fields of dance. They join the Department’s existing programmes: MA Dance Anthropology, MFA Choreography, MRes Choreography and Performance, and Choreomundus: International Masters in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage. Together, they highlight all the intellectual and artistic concerns that sit at the heart of Roehampton Dance.
Building on the legacies of successful past postgraduate courses in Ballet Studies, Community Dance and South Asian Dance, the new portfolio reimagines pathways into new, transnational and transdisciplinary study, articulating a dance discourse that engages fluidly with the multiplicity of dance across the globe. We are keen for students to join us in explorations of dance research, practice and pedagogy as we all meet the demands of thinking about and making dance in the 21st century.
These three programmes can be taken as an MA (180 credits), Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits), or Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits). Full-time study lasts 12 months.
These three programmes can be taken as a Master's only:
