The MA Dance Cultures programme provides a critical framework through which to build on academic qualifications and professional experience in the fields of dance, choreography and performance studies, and it extends the knowledge and understanding of dance to national and international developments in the field of the arts.
Dance at Surrey has a leading reputation stemming from expertise in dance research and professional practice. The degree therefore provides students from diverse backgrounds with exciting opportunities to discuss and share ideas with both artists and scholars. With access to key archival, studio and theatre resources, the relationship between the theoretical and the practical enables Surrey students to build further on individual dance knowledge, theoretical enquiry and artistic interests.
The professional development of the dance graduate is another key to advancing an understanding of arts and cultural leadership and we provide individual internships at arts organisations, supported by visits from tutors. The School provides exciting opportunities to collaborate with students from other disciplines; for example, Dance and Theatre, Film or Music students often come together to collaborate on creating interdisciplinary work.
There are also opportunities to engage with PhD students across the various disciplines in the School of Arts, through regular research seminars, bi-yearly research weeks and postgraduate conferences that include papers and workshops, as well as practice-led research presentations.
