Course summary

Taught by the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, in collaboration with Leeds University Business School, this course will develop your knowledge and understanding of theatre, performance, cultural industries and entrepreneurship. You’ll develop your own creative practice working collaboratively in our specialist studios, in our on-campus professional theatre, stage@leeds, and through using digital technologies. You’ll also work with external partners and community groups and be introduced to a range of devising, creative, organisational and management techniques. The course will explore the historical and cultural contexts of theatre, innovations in practice, performance design, arts management, cultural theory, performance technologies, composition and devising, and the wider impact of the creative and cultural industries. At the same time, you’ll study modules in planning, managing innovation in business, development, creativity and social enterprise with the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies at Leeds University Business School. Our graduates have progressed onto a wide variety of career destinations, including professional theatre and media, teaching, writing, event management, marketing and business as well as further academic study. The course will allow you to reflect on the impact that performance has on societies and to develop a range of skills so that you can become an advocate of the creative arts and an entrepreneurial global citizen.
