You'll not only be able to engage with the world critically, imaginatively and creatively to secure your own career ambitions, but also actively help solve complex social, political and cultural challenges. It's your chance to go beyond traditional understanding of theatre and performance - to test and push boundaries – and learn to be a leader.The programme may be grounded in the North East, but it takes an international and intercultural approach through partnerships across the vibrant Newcastle Gateshead area. This includes working with theatre and performance practitioners, cultural venues like Northern Stage, Live Theatre and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, as well as organisations such as schools, care homes and local authorities.You'll explore the world's big challenges by innovating through your own creative practice. So, whether your role is as performer, director, writer, designer, critic or producer, this course will support you to thrive – whether working as a creative individual or collaboratively to stage timely, ambitious and culturally aware performances.Between your second and final years, you can undertake a year-long sandwich work placement. This placement will provide an opportunity to further develop your professional skills and knowledge through working in practice. There's also the option to apply for a year of study abroad.Students value the Northumbria approach with 93% saying that they were satisfied overall with their course (National Student Survey 2018)
