This degree allows you to study Theatre and Performance together with Film. In common with the other degrees offered by the School of Creative Studies and Media, this degree is structured around a balance between theory and practice. On the Theatre side of your degree you will have the opportunity to study subjects such as the history of performance, national and international dramatic traditions, theatre and society, performance and identity, live performance, acting and performance skills, scriptwriting for theatre and television and screenwriting. In each case the study of different theoretical aspects of the discipline will be brought together with opportunities to create original performance pieces both as an individual and as a member of an ensemble.
The BA in Film Studies with Theatre combines the study of these subjects with a critical investigation of topics such as the nature of the moving image, topics in film theory and the analysis of visual culture, as well as allowing you to take specialist film modules in areas such as America on Film, Film Authorship, Film Genre and French Cinema. With this degree you will have the option in your final year to produce either an individual dissertation or a piece of groupwork, both of which has performance-based options.
