Study in the USA for a year as part of your degree and develop, from the course, the skills needed for success as a global professional in the Creative and Performing Arts or in a literary career. On our innovative Drama and English Literature degree, you'll be taught by world-leading academics and theatre practitioners. On the UK-delivered elements of the course, you’ll spend half of your time at the Bathway Theatre in Woolwich - a specialist drama facility with six studios and a flexible theatre space - and half at Greenwich Maritime campus. As part of this course, you'll study literature, visual narratives, fiction and poetry. You can hone your performance skills through large-scale public productions and create your own Theatre Company in the final year. You’ll also get the chance on this course to study - in your third year - for a year in the USA, enhancing your global profile. What you should know about this course
