Course summary

Combining the study of traditional theatre with performance practice, our Drama and Theatre BA develops your skills and creative vision for a career in the theatre profession. In your first year, you learn basic performance skills, technical theatre disciplines, and how to work creatively and safely on and behind the stage. Productions are directed, devised, designed and performed by students, advised and supported by their tutors. Previous examples include plays, installations, physical theatre, stand-up comedy, applied theatre projects in schools, museums and community venues and design exhibitions. Later in the programme, you are given the opportunity to undertake work experience in the theatre world. Close links with the professional industry are reflected in guest lectures and placement opportunities. Our diverse range of teachers includes academics with years of university teaching experience, and theatre professionals who have worked in the industry.
