Overview In combination, Theatre, Acting & Performance and English Literature provide you with an opportunity to develop your practical experience and academic study of making and presenting theatre alongside wider academic study of plays and other literary forms written in English. As you progress, you may choose to select modules that maintain a deliberately wide-ranging approach. Alternatively, however, you can hone and focus in on your own interests, creating opportunities to develop more specialist complementary, extended projects across the two subject areas. Both subject areas aim to support your understanding of the range of possibilities that could be available to you on graduation and, as well as the option to undertake work placements, there are opportunities to explore postgraduate study and to investigate, with those who are already working in them, career paths in teaching, the creative and cultural industries and other employment sectors in which graduates of theatre and English literature courses find work. If you like both academic study and creative, practical work - and if reading, performing and exploring 'contemporary' cultural forms are what excite your curiosity (with 'contemporary' embracing not just the culture of your today but the todays of diverse others, from readers, writers and performers in 17th century England to those of 20th century America) - then this joint honours course may well be the one for you.
