The Dance Department has added an exciting new course to their portfolio, taught in Norway, France, Hungary and the UK. Choreomundus: International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage is a four semester full-time Erasmus Mundus Masters Course, taught mainly in English. It investigates dance and other movement systems (ritual practices, martial arts, games and physical theatre) as Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH).

 

The programme is offered by a consortium of four universities recognised for their leadership in the development of innovative curricula for the analysis of dance. Choreomundus focuses on fieldwork and formal analysis of movement, and engages with a variety of theoretical and methodological frameworks. The programme develops an appreciation of dance that is comparative, cross-cultural, applied, and embodied, and gives students the tools for making sense of intangible heritage within a culturally diverse world.

 

Applicants should hold a undergraduate first degree in Dance, Anthropology or related subjects, or equivalent professional experience.
