About BA Theatre and Portuguese

This degree combines theatre with the study of Portuguese, the official language of nine countries. The political importance of countries like Angola and Brazil means that Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand. 

The course offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges and a wide range of options that will allow you to pursue your own interests. Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment for students.

The theatre course will allow you to develop your understanding and practical skills by exploring critical and historical frameworks alongside practical workshops. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre makers and our museum-accredited archive, the Theatre Collection. 

For Portuguese, as well as following a structured language course, you will explore the literature, cinema, history, thought, politics, linguistics and culture of Portuguese-speaking countries. You will spend your third year abroad in a Portuguese-speaking environment, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad.

When you return to Bristol for your final year you will have the opportunity to undertake an independent practical or written research project and/or a work placement in the creative industries.
