Fall in with Shakespeare this Autumn

The Shakespeare Institute, in collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC), is launching its latest short course, Fall in with Shakespeare this month.

A performance of Shakespeare

The course will explore key concepts relating to the study of Shakespeare, such as genre, language, performance, Shakespeare in Education, and Global Shakespeare. It will be delivered by leading scholars from the Shakespeare Institute and offers opportunities to discuss productions with RSC theatre practitioners including David Troughton and Blanche McIntyre.

Starting on Monday 24 October, the course includes six weeks of Shakespeare content, an optional two weeks of Research Skills and Methods, followed by the option to complete an essay based on your learning. Completing this course may be used as an alternative qualification to those listed as entry requirements for the Shakespeare Institute MA programmes.

Dr Ella Hawkins, Teaching Fellow in Early Modern English, says: “Our new online short course is a fantastic opportunity for you to get a taste of what studying at postgraduate level at the Shakespeare Institute is like and to gain a qualification that can be used for entry to our Shakespeare MA programmes, should this be your goal.

“However, Fall in with Shakespeare is also an ideal opportunity for those who wish to study simply for pleasure to gain significant knowledge of Shakespeare and a range of transferable skills.”
