Course programme

An exciting introduction to the world of theatre and performance in its widest context.

Through a blend of practical workshops, textual study, and critical investigation, you will explore the many ways in which theatre today, and through the ages, has contributed to cultural discourse.

You will take a variety of modules, all using an approach that integrates theory and practice. You will gain an all-round knowledge of theatre and performance. Ranging from World Drama to Trends in Directing, and extending to areas such as Drama as Community, Staging Gender, and Site Specific Theatre, you will learn how various periods and types of performance shape theatre as a vibrant force in society.

There are active links with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, The Bath Theatre Royal, the Rondo Theatre Bath and the Arc Theatre, Trowbridge. Excellent practical opportunities are provided through the Department's own theatre company, Full Tilt.

Although not a vocational training course, the Drama programme will equip you with writing, presentational, communication, and collaborative skills that are invaluable in many other professional and vocational areas.

Teaching Methods and Resources

Academic study combines with practical and workshop-based sessions that help bring theoretical ideas to life.

A purpose-built University Theatre (costing in the region of £4.8m) was completed in 2006.

Assessment methods include essays and dissertations. Practical work is assessed through a variety of presentations, group work, and working evaluative logs (portfolios).
