Cardiff Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The study of Drama at Cardiff Met forms part of the BA Humanities and Education Joint Honours programme within the Cardiff School of Education and Social Policy.
The Drama side of the degree introduces you to a range of theatre genres, playwrights and practitioners using both textual and practical exploration. You will be encouraged to consider the influences from which theatre is made, experiment with performance styles and analyse theatre practice. In addition you have the opportunity to develop your own skills as a theatre maker, as both performer and director. You will also explore how drama can be applied to a range of community and educational settings, which will complement your work-based placement in year two.
The Creative Writing element of your degree will develop your thinking through textual and practical exploration, and equip you with a wide variety of writing skills and methodologies in relation to different genres (fiction, poetry, scriptwriting, non-fiction, etc.). You will be encouraged to consider textual influence and experiment with different styles. At the core of the degree is your development as a writer and the honing of skills that you can use to find jobs in a variety of creative industries such as publishing, journalism and marketing.
You'll cultivate your individual voice and writing style through revision and editing, and share your writing and thinking with your fellow students in a supportive and evaluative environment. We encourage and support our students to seek publication and to develop a writing portfolio for prospective employers.
