This joint honours degree combines historical and theoretical study with practice-based investigations of theatre, film and television. There are opportunities to engage with industry professionals and to use our museum-accredited archive, the Theatre Collection.
In your first year you will attend lectures, seminars and workshops that will introduce you to analysing performance in a wide variety of forms from stage to screen. You will also be introduced to a range of practical skills in theatre and film.
In subsequent years you can choose units exploring significant historical movements, contemporary practices and theoretical concepts. Your final year independent study projects can mix group or individual performance, a short film, a written dissertation, an industrial placement or an industry study.
You will have access to filmmaking equipment, production studios and editing software and to the Wickham Theatre, where productions are presented and practical teaching takes place. We also have strong links with theatres, arts centres and media companies.
