This programme is taught jointly between King’s and Shakespeare’s Globe, focusing on the study of the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. At the Globe, students will learn about early modern playhouses, audiences, performance practices and get to play on the stage and at King’s you will cover early modern drama and other literary genres, examining Shakespeare alongside his contemporaries. The modules are assessed entirely through coursework, typically a 4,000-word essay for 20-credit modules and 8,000 to 10,000 words for a 40-credit module. Each student will also be writing a dissertation.
