Course programme

BA Drama and Film and TV Studies

Full-Time Programme

You will undertake theoretical modules and a limited range of practical modules throughout. Widely different tastes and innovative approaches are positively encouraged. Our undergraduate programme focus on the meanings experienced in artworks, on the role of the performer in creating a work's meaning and, even more fundamental, on what a 'work of art' actually is.

Course Content

You can choose to study equal amounts of both Drama and Film and Television Studies, or decide to major in one area.

The Drama degree specialises in contemporary performance and you will undertake a rigorous investigation of a range of approaches and perspectives.

As a Joint Honours student you will concentrate on Drama as a theory-based study rather than an exploration and study of practice. However, there are a limited number of practical modules available to you, including Performance Elements 1, Community Project, Digital Performance, and Placement.

You will study film and television texts from a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives and develop the critical and technological vocabularies and theoretical frameworks with which to conduct close textual and contextual analysis. Limited opportunities will be available for practical work, but significantly less so than is the case for single honours students.

Teaching and Learning

How will I be taught?

Depending on individual modules, a combination of lectures, seminars, class screenings, workshops and tutorials.

Careers

Our graduates enter a wide range of theatre and media careers; some go into arts administration, sometimes after further specialist training. Some work as teachers or therapists, or progress to postgraduate study. The skills acquired in our programmes can also prove valuable in careers in retailing and administration.

There are also openings in the fields of journalism, publishing, research, critical writing, and programming. The University has a radio station and a student magazine for those hoping to get experience in journalism, production and presenting.

Throughout your course you will also be encouraged to develop transferable skills such as IT ability, and communication, presentation and report writing skills.
