Drama, Applied Theatre and Education Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London

Undergraduate

Awarded by: University of London

There are two distinctive pathway options on the BA (Hons) Drama, Applied Theatre and Education programme at Central. 1) Students on the Standard pathway learn to make theatre and acquire a practical knowledge and understanding of how theatre-making can be harnessed to change lives and inspire new possibilities. Focusing on a wide range of practices that take place in numerous and diverse settings – such as schools, hospitals, prisons, pupil referral units, refugees camps, community centres, playgrounds, parks, and nursing homes, in the UK and abroad – the course has a long heritage of innovative and cutting-edge research and practice. BA 'DATE' graduates are highly employable and lead the field in applied theatre internationally. 2) Launched in 2015, the Writing for Performance pathway provides students with the opportunity to learn how to make theatre while also focusing particularly on the role of the writer within a wide range of performance contexts. Benefiting from its close relationship with the Standard pathway of BA DATE degree, Writing for Performance focuses on socially engaged practice whilst introducing students to the dramaturgical skills of writing. Students will participate practically with the processes of writing for performance, whilst also engaging with the different theories and practices of theatre-making and performance. Applicants are considered for both course options through a single UCAS application choice (W490) and through a single interview process.
