Course description

This programme has two main areas of emphasis, the first is Drama as a cultural process and artistic discourse. This provides the broad palette, which we aim to understand through the intellectual consideration of theoretical and dramatic texts, performance venues, and theatre, cinema and television events. The second area is Drama as practice. This forms an integral part of our academic study of the subject. We teach Drama as the product of varied practical artistic and craft skills. Our department differs from professional theatre training and the skill-oriented programmes of some colleges. Our practical work is intended to increase your understanding of how production and performance express cultural values, and what means are needed for that expression, rather than learning the skills as ends in themselves.

Flexible Honours may allow you to study an additional arts, languages or cultures subject. Find out more here


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £15,500 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate fees pages.
