Our postgraduate dance course supports a broad range of artistic practices and includes specialisms in screen-based dance practice, interdisciplinary performance work and site-based performance.
We'll support you to develop your postgraduate level research skills, which will help you develop your own creative practice. In addition, collaborative opportunities form a key part of the programme, enabling you to work across art forms with other practitioners.
This MA Dance course will take one full year, or two if you choose to study part-time. As a full-time student you’ll take two 30 credit modules in term one, two 30 credit modules in term two, and one 60 credit module (your final project) in term three. As a part-time student you'll take two modules in your first year and three in your second, the last of which is your final project.
This trimester has a substantial taught element, with a number of optional classes.
Following your first trimester, your second also has a substantial taught element, with optional classes available.
Trimester three, your thesis module, is largely self-directed, with tutorials and peer presentations leading to course completion.
There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. The parkland estate has everything you’d expect from a modern university, as well as a castle and a lake. All this and it's only four miles from the buzz of central Bath.

Job Opportunity Potential
We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:
- Exploring your options
- Gaining valuable experience
- Progressing your ideas and career plans
At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.
We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
- 2 Years PSW is applicable after the course completing (Bachelors level or above).
