Course summary

Literature and theatre speak to us about the world we live in and about social and cultural issues that affect our lives. In this course you will have the opportunity to study intellectually and creatively, and to explore the relationship between literature, theatre and society.You will learn to research and analyse literary and performance texts, and work on drama projects designed to deepen your understanding of different kinds of plays and theatre practitioners. This course has a unique emphasis upon adaptation of novels, short stories, poetry and popular forms such as rock music and cartoons for performance both on stage and screen..The drama portion of your course will teach you how to communicate ideas creatively, and to make links between literature and screen and stage performance. The optional structure of the course means that you can choose whether to emphasise drama ‘in theory’ or drama ‘in practice’ or a combination of the two.The English portion will equip you with the key skills and analytical tools needed for literary study and will also encourage you to explore social and cultural issues raised by literary texts. After graduation, you could go into theatre, publishing, education, journalism, advertising, PR and events. The course also provides an ideal platform for postgraduate study.
