We study the economics and management of theatre and cinema within the creative industries.Year One modules will give you a broad understanding of how theatre and film work as creative industries. You start your study of theatre and film narrative and performance, and gain experience of creative production.Year Two examines questions of genre and creativity alongside the theory and practice of stage performance. In Years Three and Four you will look at key periods, movements and practitioners in theatre and film drama, alongside modules in areas such as adaptation, comedy, playwriting and Hollywood cinema. You can create your own production projects and choose additional, optional subjects such as photography or community theatre.Alongside the course’s academic core you will have plenty of opportunity to gain production experience from Year One, and can specialise in practice areas in later years.
