About BA Theatre and Film

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. You will also be introduced to a range of practical production skills in theatre and film.

In subsequent years you can choose units exploring significant historical movements, contemporary practices and theoretical concepts. Your independent study project could be a group or individual performance, a short film, a dissertation, an extended essay or an industrial placement.

You will have access to our film-making equipment and editing suites 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.
