About MArts Theatre with Innovation

The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with a breadth enabling them to work across specialisms and cultures.

This course combines in-depth subject specialism in theatre with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. You will study theatre to gain a solid discipline strength. Alongside this you will apply your subject knowledge to innovate and translate your ideas into plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.

The course will equip you to use the critical, theoretical and practical skills central to theatre, allowing you to develop your knowledge and skills across a range of areas as you proceed through the course. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre-makers and also our theatre archive – The Theatre Collection.

You will come together with students from other innovation disciplines such as computer science and geography to learn and apply design and systems thinking to digital and creative ideas and will put this into practice working in transdisciplinary teams, ultimately creating new ventures together.
