Course summary

We place live performance and the play-text centre stage on this degree, as you balance practical creativity, technique enhancement and theoretical study to become a reflective, articulate and highly employable practitioner. As part of our drama student community you should be passionate and motivated to develop specialist interests in areas such as acting, directing, writing or applied drama. With award-winning expertise in playwriting, directing, acting and community theatre, our staff will help you relate your practice to critical theories, theatre histories and contemporary ideas to enable you to develop artistic skills and vision in professional theatre spaces.

Assessment method

Assessment is through a balanced mixture of practical and written work including essays, reflective journals, workshop performances, full productions and oral presentations. Practical work and research go hand-in-hand and all good practice is informed by sound theoretical investigation. In assessment, therefore, you can expect to be tested on both your practical and theoretical knowledge and understanding. You will also be encouraged to reflect critically on your learning and use journals to reflect on your personal development.
