Course objectives
The aim of the course is to introduce applied drama, a process-oriented drama in the context of social pedagogy. Applied drama is an umbrella term for work with drama in education, in the therapeutic and community setting, depending on the degree of use of drama with other disciplines that benefit from philosophy and social sciences such as cultural studies, cultural ethnography, pedagogy, psychology, sociology, anthropology. The process of action and reflection within the applied drama opens the possibility of using drama as a means of education.
