Combine your passion for theatre, performance, and literature with the BA (Hons) Drama and English degree at the University of Lincoln. This interdisciplinary joint honours programme allows students to engage with the vast majority of modules available on both the Drama and English degrees and offers full access to the range of unique opportunities developed by both programmes. Led by experts in English literature, theatre, and performance research, as well as professional performers, theatre makers, and industry specialists with national and international connections, this course will help prepare you for a wide selection of careers.
The English element of the course considers literature from a variety of theoretical, historical, and cultural perspectives, while the theatre and performance components allow students to encounter creative practice, technical theatre, and performance skills together with a critical study of drama and theatre.
Through a mixture of core and optional modules, both practical and theoretical, you'll be able to curate your own journey through the programme. While the English side of the course covers poetry, fiction, and drama, as well as less traditional literary forms such as life-writing and graphic novels, in Drama students can choose to focus on script work, play analysis, live performance, technical theatre, devised work, and more.
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.
The 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.
