This diverse degree programme will train you in a variety of performance skills and techniques. You'll develop a broad understanding of the industry and spend time focusing on all aspects of production. We're looking for self-motivated and enthusiastic applicants who can demonstrate a strong interest in the arts.
During this course you will study a number of practical modules and learn physical and vocal performance skills. You'll be taught by a number of professional experts and once you master the core elements of performing, you'll begin to look at unusual and experimental approaches to performance. In the theoretical and practical perspectives modules, you'll look at the various ways that performance can be conceived and consider its importance in society.
Throughout this degree you'll create a series of shows, films, short scenes and devised performances. In your third year, you'll set-up your own theatre company and devise a production that you will manage from conception through to venue booking, marketing and performance.
You can take optional modules, which give you the chance to specialise in an area of your choosing. This could be directing for performance, devising and writing or arts marketing. You'll also be able to learn about how to work with cameras and gain invaluable knowledge of editing and filming.
