AMERICAN STUDIES

America is distinct among modern countries because of the stories it tells about itself; as the land of the free, and as a site of endless possibilities. A degree in American Studies asks you to uncover the stories that are not being told and to interrogate the world’s superpower using a variety of disciplinary approaches. This degree will equip you with the tools you need to make sense of the world and to learn from a decidedly decolonised curriculum that privileges the histories and cultures of marginalised and oppressed peoples. Our academics are leading researchers in American Cinema, History, Literature, and Politics and we bring our expert knowledge to bear in challenging and rewarding classes, on topics including the civil rights movement, contemporary presidential politics, and the literature of the Deep South.

You will explore areas including:

  • American film, journalism, literature, and music
  • histories of race, colonialism and oppression
  • the frontier at home and abroad in the context of politics and foreign relations
  • issues of ethnicity, gender, and class.

DRAMA

You will be part of a focused and intensive exploration of drama as a practical and academic discipline. Through an exciting programme of productions, lectures, seminars, theatre visits, workshops and masterclasses with practising industry professionals, you will gain valuable experience in:

  • acting
  • directing
  • applied drama
  • contemporary performance practices
  • stage management.
