Why study Drama and Theatre Studies?

Students are provided with a wide variety of experiences within the course, which includes project work based set play texts and work devised by the students themselves. A variety of workshops and visits by guest speakers and leading exponents from related areas are organised as part of the course. A key component of the course are regular visits to the theatre in order to gain experience of a variety of genres. Students are expected to undertake research by reading a range of plays, and they are encouraged to experiment through staging performances of their own, e.g. using locations such as a castle, a church and open air locations.
