Clifton campus

Through the combined study of theatre and English, this course provides you with the key skills to understand and make performance through 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.

In your first year of theatre studies you will learn how to analyse performance and develop practical skills in theatre. In your second and third years you will choose options that deepen your critical and practical expertise, culminating in independent study, a group or individual theatre performance, a dissertation, an extended essay and/or an industrial placement in your final year.

For English you will study a broad range of literature from the medieval period to the present day. This will include the close, analytical study of poetry, fiction and drama, and critical and theoretical approaches to studying literature.

In years one and two the study of successive periods of English literature is complemented by work on individual authors, topics and genres.

In your second and third years you will be able to choose from a range of stimulating options and research-led special subjects, including creative writing. Year three includes the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of your own choosing.
