Course summary

This degree will teach you how to make and perform theatre, to write stories, novels, scripts and poetry at an advanced level. You will study writing and theatre making in all its forms, from genre fiction and film, to performance poetry and experimental theatre.As creative practitioners we need to be skilled in the art of imaginative expression, but we also need to understand how literature and performance works and to learn from what has been done before. You will study writers and theatre practitioners who have contributed new perspectives and innovations, and apply this learning to your own creative processes.Literature and theatre speak to us about the world we live in; the social and cultural issues that affect our lives. In this course you will have the opportunity to find your own voice. Whether it be directing for theatre, working with creative graffiti or writing the first chapter of your novel, we encourage you to develop your creative independence, to break new ground but also to develop and express a critical understanding of your creative projects.During your time at Salford, you will work in cutting edge studio and theatre spaces with the support of experienced theatre makers, writers and technicians and in addition to your regular classes, you will have access to masterclasses and advice from some of the most exciting theatre companies and practitioners from around the country. Renowned playwright, Jim Cartwright (The Rise and Fall of Little Voice) has established his theatre company here at Salford.
