In studying the BA (Hons) Drama and English degree at Lincoln, students will be encouraged to make connections between the subjects, explore key differences between them and also develop critical rigour while questioning conventional assumptions about literature, drama, and the world. Within the English element of the degree, students will have the opportunity to question identity and representation in literature in a quest to understand the pivotal role that it plays in society. The English syllabus explores a lively and varied collection of texts within their historical contexts, from Georgian literature and Romanticism to postcolonialism and postmodernism. As well as a thorough grounding in the academic elements of Drama, this joint honours degree places an emphasis on bringing together the critical study of Drama with exploratory practice and aims to put the creativity of performance at centre stage. With a wide range of optional modules that explore a variety of genres and playwrights, students have an opportunity to prepare for a range of careers in the theatre and media, both on and off stage.

Additional fee information

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs. With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that students are required to read. However, students may prefer to purchase some of these for themselves and will therefore be responsible for this cost.
