Taught by expert staff from the Department of English and the School of Theatre Studies, this course emphasises the relationship between writer, text, performer, critic, playing place and society within a historical, political and cultural context. You will have many opportunities to see a diverse range of productions at the world-renowned theatres at nearby Stratford-upon-Avon and on campus at Warwick Arts Centre.
Theatre Studies modules examine developments in theatrical theory and practice, often focusing on plays related to theatrical and political history, and emphasising how past movements have shaped the theatre of the present. English Literature elements focus on the close study of literary texts, exploring form and meaning. You will learn to understand and critically analyse texts, and to present persuasive and coherent written and oral arguments while developing independent thought, judgement and creativity. This gives you a distinct advantage in the workplace.

Additional entry requirements
We prefer to interview candidates before making an offer. Interviews are tailor-made to each individual and designed to explore your suitability for study at Warwick, so they do not follow a set pattern. There is nothing specific you need to do to prepare, but expect to be asked about the literary works you have studied or have read beyond the syllabus, and the other interests you mention in your personal statement. The interview day typically includes an opportunity to meet with staff and students. Separate arrangements will be made for international students to complete an online interview.
