University of Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Studying Drama and English allows you to explore many aspects of culture, performance and society. Your Drama modules will develop your practical theatre-making skills as well as giving you an understanding of the historical and political context of theatre. On the English side of your programme you will study English Literature.
First-year modules cover a broad base of the subject and are designed to introduce you to ways of studying at university. By the final year the modules you take will become more specialised and reflect the research expertise of the academic staff. More detailed module information can be found on the ‘Course detail’ tab on the University of Birmingham’s coursefinder web pages.
