Course Summary

Comedy and satire play a vital role in commenting on, and critiquing, the world around us.- You’ll have the opportunity to specialise in one of two pathways: writing, or writing & performing. - In both pathways you'll examine how comedy and satire have evolved across time-periods and cultures; developing your historical, social, political and cultural knowledge of these art forms.
