Course summary

Our degree programme in Drama is composed of a series of modules, most of which conclude with a presentation open to fellow Drama students and staff, the University at large or to the general public. In the early stages of the programme the emphasis is on group collaborative work. As you move through the degree this group work becomes the basis for the development of individual interests and skills. Throughout the programme you will get equal opportunities and challenges to act, direct, write or create dramatic events.In the first half of your first year you will study a compulsory studio-based module and a compulsory seminar-based module, introducing you to theatre studies and performance analysis as disciplines of Drama. In the second half of the year your practical work will focus on a performance-orientated module rooted in research through practice and you will be introduced to a selection of modern and contemporary practitioners in their context. Your second year extends and deepens your critical and theoretical vocabulary of theatre; while in the studio you will explore a range of theatrical texts. You may be able to study abroad for half a year and you can choose to integrate work experience into your degree. Your final year allows you to specialise in practical and research options, and your degree culminates in a piece of original performance that you will create with a small group of fellow students for an audience beyond the University, alongside an in-depth independent study of a chosen area of theatre and performance.Modules are taught by staff with expertise in theatre, drama and performance theory from the classical era to the present, and in practice fields including acting, directing, scriptwriting, voice, applied theatre, live art, digital theatre crafts, music theatre, puppetry, dance and intercultural performance training.
