The University of South Wales's Performance and Media degree invites you to explore the growing and diverse field of performance by questioning the relationship between live performance and a range of recorded media. You’ll study all major media forms such as theatre, film, television and radio through academic and practical work. You’ll also examine the production of new ideas in digital, interactive and multi-media performance practices. Course content is designed to develop your intellectual, practical and technical skills, so you can explore global traditions, concepts and approaches to performance and media. You’ll work alongside visiting companies, professional theatre, film, and television practitioners. There are also many extracurricular activities that will look impressive on your CV, including public productions, student films and a student radio station. Studying Performance and Media in Cardiff means you’ll have world-class venues and production companies on your doorstep, including the headquarters of BBC Wales, a major centre for production in the UK (Dr Who, Torchwood), the recently developed Pinewood Studios Wales, National Theatre Wales and the Welsh National Opera amongst others. USW's Performance and Media degree is also part of Film & TV School Wales, which provides students with the skills and opportunities needed to work in today’s exciting TV and Film industry.
