If you love drama and want to use it to make a difference in the wider world, then you’ll find that our Applied Drama courses, which mix the academic and the creative, will offer you the opportunity to put your love of drama to practical use. Throughout our drama courses, you will acquire a number of useful skills which can be transferred to the workplace, such as good communication skills, the ability to work effectively in groups and as an individual, good organisational and decision-making skills, effective analytical skills, and the ability to apply theory to practice. Possible future careers for Applied Drama graduates could include theatre management, drama therapy, teaching and academic careers, community and mainstream theatre work, community work (such as Special Educational Needs and mental health). All Drama graduates may also find employment in the public or private sectors, in the creative industries, within the media, the tourism and leisure sector, or within education. We recognise that individuals come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, so we use a variety of assessment strategies on our courses. We use a versatile range of assessments in Drama which reflect both the equal emphasis we place on theory and practice, and the importance we give to the future employment skills of our graduates. Theory-based assessment methods include analytical reports, student-led seminars, presentations, essays, dissertations, exhibitions of work and portfolios. More practical assessment methods may include analysed performances, group presentations, practical performances or large scale individual community placements.
