I have accepted my unconditional place on a 4 year Applied Psychology MSc Course. I am super excited to start in September. However, recently I have realised my passion for drama and drama teaching and now I'm panicking if chosen the wrong degree. Does anyone know of alternative routes I could get into drama teaching alongside doing my degree? Thanks for the help!

Hi g.spizzle!

Delighted to hear you have been accepted onto this course , don't worry its hard to know what path to choose when it comes to post grad study!
Liverpool Hope do offer a PGCE in Drama which is open for 2019/20 entry. However, many universities offer a psychology conversion masters which could be an alternative option for you, say you choose to go back to it after your teaching career.

You can read more about these courses here:
https://www.hope.ac.uk/postgraduate/...pgcesecondary/

https://www.hope.ac.uk/postgraduate/...psychologymsc/

If you still find that you are unsure on which path to choose, we do have a few open days coming up, where you can speak to our tutors from both departments to enlighten your decision! https://www.hope.ac.uk/opendays/opendaysschedule/

Hope this helps, if you have anymore questions just let us know!

Are you sure you're doing the right degree if drama is your passion?

I wouldn't worry about it now as your on a 4 year course, but try to get some experience helping/observing at a local school. When you are finished, you could do a PGCE which is a postgraduate course you can do and become a teacher afterwards, but unsure how this would work if your degree is not drama. Hopefully that make sense, what I'm trying to say is why would a school employ someone without a drama degree to teach drama? What would that candiate look like?

There was also a user a few days ago with a thread about drama and teaching in this section that would be worth tracking down.
