Essex’s BA Film and Drama course is perfect for the creative types. This course is suitable for those wishing to to break into the world of cinema, the stage and behind the scenes - and a whole range of other graduate careers in the arts, media, education, and the creative industries. This course will study themes in drama such as gender, identity, tragedy, human rights, devising and playwriting. The film modules explore directing, screenwriting, classic and contemporary texts and many aspects of screen media, from cinema to social media. Students will gain the skills in technical theatre and film production, like design and stage management, camerawork, editing and film-making. Students will also write essays as in any other Humanities degree, but alongside honing their critical writing and thinking, they will also have the chance to be assessed on their creativity, performance and technical skills. The modules Directing Actors for Film and Introduction to Screenwriting give students a seamless mix of both film and drama so they can excel throughout the screen and the stage. This course is based in Essex’s Department of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies.
