This course combines theatre with the study of English and provides students with the key skills to understand and make performance through exploring critical and historical frameworks alongside practical workshops. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre makers and our museum-accredited archive, the Theatre Collection. The first year of theatre studies covers performance and practical skills in theatre. In the second and third years, students will choose options that deepen their critical and practical expertise, culminating in independent study, a group or individual theatre performance, a dissertation, an extended essay and/or an industrial placement in their final year. The English component covers a broad range of literature from the medieval period to the present day. This will include the close, analytical study of poetry, fiction and drama, and critical and theoretical approaches to studying literature. In years one and two the study of successive periods of English literature is complemented by work on individual authors, topics and genres. In the second and third years, students can choose from a range of stimulating options and research-led special subjects, including creative writing. Year three is fully optional and includes the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of one’s own choosing.
