We currently offer the following postgraduate courses for qualified teachers:


MA Creative Arts in the Classroom

This course, offered in partnership with King’s College London, explores how schools and arts organisations can work together to support and enhance learning and teaching across the curriculum.

Students complete four taught modules and a dissertation. The two compulsory taught modules are undertaken with us:


This module explores how interaction with arts organisations, artists and performing art forms can enrich teaching and learning across the curriculum. This is taught at Shakespeare’s Globe and assessed through a 6000-word essay.


This module allows students to develop a critical understanding of performing arts practice at Shakespeare’s Globe, and explores the variety of art forms that interact in the production of theatre. Students will be assessed through an oral presentation and a 3000 word essay.

The core modules can tie-in with a number of optional modules available to students, including:

  • Notions of English
  • English, the Arts and Language
  • Education, Policy & the City
  • e-Learning: Theory & Practice
  • Recent Developments in Education
  • Management
  • The Social Context of Schooling


The final dissertation is 20,000 words, and this extended piece of research offers students the chance to engage in a close investigation of an area of their own practice, based on a second, week-long work experience, with an arts organisation.


 The programme may be taken over one year (Full Time) or two to four years (Part Time).

The MA can be taken over a period of up to four years. This is to ensure that busy professionals are able to participate and pace their studies alongside their school responsibilities.


Designed for English and drama teachers working at all key stages seeking to develop a balanced mix of theoretical and practical knowledge.
