Overview Drama with Psychology has been specifically designed for anyone wanting to develop skills in drama and performance but who has an additional interest or ambition in using these skills in a wider context. The advantage of this design over a joint honours for example is that it presents a coherent and identifiable route into a range of career opportunities. The balance of the course is such that you will be able to develop enough high level skills and understanding of both Drama & Performance and Psychology to pursue career opportunities in these areas. The course is a combination of evidence and problem-based learning together with the application of theory into practice. Over the three years, you will have the opportunity to develop practical, technical, conceptual and creative skills with the ability to conduct research, critical analysis and application of your understanding in a range of contexts. In the first and second years the flavour is more towards the drama related aspects to allow you to develop the necessary skills in these areas whilst developing the necessary skills and knowledge in Psychology to embed and apply your learning throughout the course. In the third year additional psychology modules are available, which enables you to choose the balance of your final year and so steer the degree towards your own interests and ambitions. Completing the course with a good second class honours degree will enable access onto one of our related post-graduate courses.
