This degree will enable you to explore the boundaries of your own creativity in both writing and drama. You may be an aspiring author who is keen to develop a new appreciation of literature, learn to read as a writer, and live the writer’s life. You may also be a reflective and articulate drama and theatre maker of the future, seeking to balance practical creativity with technique enhancement and theoretical study. The study of poetry, fiction, writing for stage, screen and radio will be complemented by the development of specialist interests in areas such as acting, directing and applied drama. You will develop your own creative writing skills and philosophy of composition while also enhancing your artistic technique and vision in our professional theatre spaces.
