Course summary

T​​he study of Drama at Cardiff Met forms part of the ​BA Humanities and Education Joint Honours programme within​​ the Cardiff School of Education and Social Policy.​The Drama side of the de​gree introduces you to a range of theatre genres, playwrights and practitioners using both textual and practical exploration. You will be encouraged to consider the influences from which theatre is made, experiment with performance styles and analyse theatre practice. In addition you have the opportunity to develop your own skills as a theatre maker, as both performer and director. You will also explore how drama can be applied to a range of community and educational settings, which will complement your work-based placement in year two.​The Media part of the degree combines theoretical analysis of media, such as film, TV and digital media with practical skills in digital media, media writing and journalism, with particular focus given to 'specialist journalism', such as film, music, fashion and sports journalism. Taught by academic staff who ​are current practitioners and researchers, this distinctive degree subject also has a strong employability focus allowing students to combine theoretical perspectives with practical vocational skills. Students will graduate with strong communication and analytical skills that are highly valued in today’s employment market. These skills are reinforced by work placements. As part of a Joint honours degree the programme is well integrated and encourages students to make connections across the curriculum. As well as a rich and varied academic focus, the course also benefits from exciting extra-curricula opportunities, including visiting media professionals and cultural excursions.
