Apply to join our MA Storytelling Programme (face-to-face and online)

Storytelling is no longer restricted to verbal replays – emotions can be invoked, and a narrative shared, using a wide variety of different formats. The focus of the MA Storytelling programme is on applied storytelling, which is the use and application of storytelling within contexts of community-building, personal and professional development, and policy formation.

This is an innovative Master’s degree which takes storytelling as a creative practice, with the storytelling practitioner at its core. It builds on our international reputation for research in applied storytelling relating to areas of health, the environment, education and social justice. The programme offers you the opportunity to develop as storytelling practitioners and work alongside researchers on existing projects in the UK and overseas.

MA Storytelling is taught through the Storytelling Academy in the School of Design and Creative Arts at Loughborough and is suitable for anyone wishing to develop their own storytelling practice. We anticipate that the degree will bring together students with an exciting and diverse range of experiences of areas such as storytelling, performance, art, writing, teaching and education, heritage and museum work, journalism, healthcare, NGO and international development work and community programme management, among many others.
