The course

We believe that theatre and performance occurs not only in theatre buildings, but also in cities, on streets, in rituals and daily life, and in spaces real, virtual and imagined. This course allows you to engage creatively and critically with contemporary social, political and aesthetic issues through the lens of Theatre and Performance Studies. You will learn in an intimate and supportive environment, taught by academics at the forefront of internationally significant research.

Teaching is delivered through both practical and seminar-based modules (e.g. Performance and Contemporary City, Food and Performance, African and South African Theatre, Intercultural Performance, Writing for Performance, Dramaturgy, Marketing, Theatre History and Historiography) and you can also pursue individual research projects. You will also benefit from our outstanding resources and connections to the theatre industries and creative sector, with visits and guest workshops by renowned practitioners. You will develop valuable transferable research, analytical, organisational and communication skills alongside the ability to think and work creatively.

Additional fee information

Home and EU undergraduate tuition fees for 2017/18 academic year is £9,250 and tuition fee for 2018/19 academic year is yet to be confirmed and is expected to increase subject to government policy decisions. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases will be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments). The University has set the overseas fees for the next 3 academic years and please refer to the following link for future overseas tuition fee http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/academicoffice/finance/fees/overseasfees/.
