Design for Theatre & Screen (with Professional Practice Year) at University for the Creative Arts - UCAS

Course summary

Tell stories, build worlds, and create characters on our exciting BA (Hons) Design for Theatre & Screen degree course at UCA Farnham. On this course, we nurture imaginative and divergent thinkers, offering you the time, conditions, and support to find your creative voice and develop the confidence to say what you want to design and create with authenticity. You’ll engage with and respond to stories – researching and exploring your own ways of telling them and experimenting to find the visual worlds where those stories could thrive. And you’ll have the opportunity to create the costumes and props that exist in those worlds, too. Our staff are practising theatre and film professionals, and with industry links to organisations like the Royal Opera House and National Theatre, you’ll gain the knowledge, skills, and experience to sustain your craft beyond university.

Modules

In Year 1, teaching and learning is primarily staff-led and emphasis is placed on developing core skills and a sound awareness and understanding of the different spheres of creative craft practice for theatre and film. Areas of study include costume realisation, scenic art construction, props making, puppetry and historical and contextual studies. Year 2 is designed to progressively move you away from course-led teaching and learning towards a more student-directed approach, in which you'll become increasingly self-motivated and develop the skills of an independent learner. You'll be encouraged to develop a specialist area of practice in the design and production of costume, props or sets. Year 3 of the course consolidates the various elements of study and is characterised by independent learning and the ability to fully bring together the range of experiences, knowledge and skills you've developed on the course. You'll be required to realise your work through the use of accomplished making skills and evidence of advanced levels of both self-management and critical reflection.
