What you'll learn on the course


Course programme

Course Content

In your first year, you take two modules which explore a series of key texts or theatrical moments and one lecture course introducing key historical and theoretical concepts. Students also take two performance-oriented practical modules and one technical specialism which is developed through large scale production work. Modules include Radio Drama, Scriptwriting, Commedia dell’arte, Stage Lighting and Design, Approaches to Directing and Modern British Theatre to name just a few.

Central to the second year are theatre practice modules that involve taking part in exciting and challenging performance projects. You can also choose one skills-based practical option and one study option (from a range including everything from acting classes to lighting design, and Greek Tragedy to Modern British Theatre Companies). All of this is complemented by a lecture course that examines acting, directing and scenography.

In your final year, you develop skills in independent study. You will write a dissertation on a topic of your choosing and in groups develop a significant piece of performance practice. You also take three options covering a range of aspects of theatre from different cultures and periods of theatre history to practical specialisms.

One of the unique aspects of our degree is that your course is yours to design: you can maintain a balance between performance, history and culture, or you can choose to concentrate on certain areas, emerging as a highly skilled critic, performer, writer, designer, technician or director. Whichever route you choose, you will leave Hull as a creative and reflective theatre practitioner.
