Our Drama and Theatre degree gives you the opportunity to create, perform, and examine innovative theatre and performance.
Led by experts in drama and theatre research, professional performers, theatre makers and industry specialists, this course will help prepare you for a range of careers in drama, theatre, and the cultural industries.
Exploring theatre and performance from a variety of current and global perspectives, including different cultures, histories, politics, aesthetics and ethics, you can develop a detailed understanding of theatre and its important place in our modern lives.
Through a mixture of core and optional modules, both practical and theoretical, you have the opportunity to curate your own journey through the programme, and can choose to focus on Contemporary Theatre Practice, Theatre and Performance Studies, and Technical Theatre and Production.
As part of your studies, you may also choose to study abroad through one of our many international schemes, or take up a placement in a professional setting, working alongside a theatre company, arts organisation, school or other education setting.
Our course also provides opportunities for you to perform, create and participate in a variety of performances, trips, and events with a range of partners including interdisciplinary students, professional artists and performers, and external organisations. Recently we've worked with organisations including the BBC, National Youth Theatre, Nottingham Playhouse, and the Royal Air Force.
