Tuition Fees

The Environment, Politics and Society MSc programme explores the way scientific, political and cultural practices shape our understanding of the relationship between society and the environment. It is an academic rather than vocational programme with most students pursuing further education or careers in international organisations, the public sector, NGOs or charities. There are no compulsory elements of this course that entail additional costs beyond fees and living costs.


This module addresses historical and contemporary links between avant garde theatre practices and political activism. It expands and deepens the study of artistic practices begun in Modernisms and Postmodernity A, with a focus on the activist elements of theatrical movements and parallel political organisations. The focus will be on workshop facilitation and students will be assessed on this core vocational skill. This module will focus on the relationship between play, plays and playing in socially-engaged and political theatre. ‘Play’ as a concept will be explored from many perspectives, including its importance in creative learning, playfulness in performative relationships to audience and the ‘play’ as a written text for interpretation. Understanding issues such as climate change, sustainable development and biodiversity requires knowledge about the political, moral and societal dimensions of environmental problems and solutions.
