You are taught through a combination of practical workshops, lectures and seminars. The course aims to teach theory through practice so your practical work is integrated with reference to relevant texts and journals and lectures providing a context for each module.
You will develop your performance skills (using both body and voice), investigate cultural and historical contexts, develop your creative and collaborative skills and consolidate your critical thinking. You will prepare for working professionally in the field through understanding all aspects of theatre from creative inspiration to final production.
In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least 4 occasions in the first year and three occasions in each of the other years of a course.
You have an opportunity to undertake a work placement module in the third year of the course supervised for agreed projects by a work-based mentor and a University tutor.
