BA in Theatre and Drama Studies
This is a four-year programme that centres on theatre performance training, with supporting modules to facilitate wider career options. The programme aims to produce artists that are physically and vocally flexible and intellectually alive and curious. Alongside core disciplines of voice, movement and acting studies, you will study Theatre History, Theatre Design, Theatre Technology (Sound and Lighting), Production Studies (including stage Management) and have the option to take specialist electives in Scriptwriting, Directing, Dance, Musical Theatre, Dramatherapy, and Theatre in Education. Small group and large ensemble practical and workshop sessions are balanced with lectures, tutorials and field-based studies.
In the fourth and final year, each student works on an integrated production. As the emphasis throughout the programme is on performance, this allows an involvement at a professional level as a theatre practitioner as the culmination of the four years’ work.
