Course summary

What does the course cover?

During your first year of study you will work practically through a wide range of dramatic structures covering both improvisational and scripted work, and take part in your first major production. You will explore how Drama began, with the tragedies and comedies of the Ancient Greeks, and you will also be introduced to how Applied Drama can be used.

In the second year you build on and develop all that you began in Yr 1, with a second major production, more work on Applied Drama, and an exploration of how Drama has developed over the past 150 years, through the turbulence of the Modernist era through to the violence and shock of present day Postmodern theatre.

In the final year you can choose whether to do a practical or written dissertation, take part in your Final Production, and decide how you would wish to use Drama as you begin to set out on your own path.

How will I be assessed?

The course offers variety of assessment to suit the experience of the module studied, and will range from presentations, productions and written work, essays, reviews and log books.

What careers could I consider?

This degree, because of its practical nature, offers you a wide variety of career possibilities. You could become an actor, director, or writer; working in theatre in education, community theatre or mainstream theatre. You could also become a teacher or youth worker, or undertake further study of drama at postgraduate level. In addition, you will acquire a range of skills including developing ideas and constructing arguments, and the capacity to present them in appropriate ways which will be useful in a number of careers.
