This distinctive, flexible and varied degree combines workshop-based practical theatre work with the textual study of English literature, allowing you to explore performance from both creative and critical perspectives. You’ll study literature from Old English to the contemporary period, including American and postcolonial literature. You'll have the opportunity to integrate your textual and theatrical interests through topics such as stage adaptation and surrealism. Workshops are designed to develop your skills as an artist-researcher, led by our own theatre specialists and guest tutors ranging from emerging theatre companies to internationally acclaimed playwrights. Our Workshop Theatre has been pioneering theatre studies since 1968 and counts among its alumni leading theatre practitioners, dramatists and educators. With us, you’ll develop collaborative, creative, critical thinking and project management skills that will benefit you in a wide range of careers. As a student on this programme, you’ll have access to our excellent performance and rehearsal spaces — fully equipped with lighting and sound — which are used for teaching and group work on theatre studies modules as well as performances.
