Through a combination of core and elective modules, you will study the disciplines of Physiology, Psychology, Biomechanics and Somatic Practices, underpinned by scientific research methodologies. Daily studio practice offers you a physical dance experience whilst theoretical underpinnings are explored via group lectures and workshops. Applied research skills are honed via hands-on laboratory sessions.
Throughout the programme you will have opportunities to perform, to participate in and conduct research, to undertake work placements, and to pursue modules which are aligned with professional qualifications. There are also options to connect your research with the resident student dance companies, 3Fall (undergraduate) and mapdance (postgraduate).
As you progress through your three-year BSc or four-year MSci you will be able to choose a specific pathway of study, enabling you to focus your studies in the area of Applied Performance or Health and Wellbeing.
The Applied Performance pathway offers a focus of knowledge and application to dance training and performance contexts, whereas the Health and Wellbeing pathway offers a focus of knowledge and application on the potential benefits of dance for a wide range of diverse populations. Students on the MSci extend their specialism at Master's level embarking upon a significant research dissertation and pursuing modules that focus on professional and applied techniques within dance science.
Successful completion of the programme will result in the relevant knowledge and skills to meet the ever increasing demand for well-qualified Dance Scientists across a range of professional, training, educational, recreational and community-based dance and exercise settings.
