Our BA (Hons) Drama degree puts the creativity of performance at centre stage. With modules that explore a variety of genres and playwrights, the programme aims to prepare students for a range of careers in the theatre and media, both on and off stage.
Students have the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of professional practice and an appreciation of diverse performances. A broad range of optional modules is designed to enable students to inform the direction of their study and explore specialist areas such as acting, musical theatre or stage management.
There are opportunities to participate in a variety of productions, collaborate with other departments and external companies, work with academics on research projects and perform at national and international festivals. Students may decide to join our semi-professional theatre group, The Lincoln Company, and benefit from enhanced opportunities to perform. The highlight of which are our annual performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which will incur additional costs. You may also enjoy an opportunity to study abroad in North America for a term in your second year. Costs relating to a period of study abroad are outlined under the Features tab.
This course is ideal for students who have a passion for the study of Drama as an academic subject. The balance of practical and scholarly approaches is about equal, and a range of optional modules available throughout the degree aim to enable students to tailor the course to suit their interests.
The history of performance, tragedy and comedy, and modern European drama are all covered in the first year of study, with the aim of ensuring students have a full understanding of the structures within which the world of theatre operates. In the second and third years, students can choose from a wide range of options including stage combat, teaching drama, physical theatre and theatre for young audiences.
For specific modules, learning can also take place via placements, screenings and viewing theatrical performances.
