BA Theatre Design and Production is now firmly established as a leading programme in the training of designers, scenic artists, stage managers and technicians. Its pyramid structure builds upon a broad foundation of production skills in areas such as costume, stage management, scenic construction and scenic art.
The second year concentrates on the application of these skills in a variety of design contexts before students specialise in a particular discipline for an entirely production-based final year. The principle of developing graduates skilled in more than one area, with a firm foundation in the methodology of theatre-making is central to the teaching.
Work placement modules in the final year have increasingly led to employment opportunities and graduates are currently working in a range of theatres from small-scale touring companies to large-scale opera companies.
