Combining the study of Drama and English Literature, this degree enables you to experience a thorough and broad-based education for the drama and theatre maker of the future while also seeking inspiration from literature, from classic to contemporary works. The programme balances practical creativity with technique enhancement and dramatic theory alongside an introduction to a range of theoretical and critical approaches to literature. If you are passionate about embracing the written word on the page and expressing yourself through acting, directing, writing or applied drama, this degree will develop your artistic skills and vision in professional theatre spaces while also harnessing your love of language to explore the ideas that lie behind literature in all its forms and investigate the impact of literature on societies.
