This degree allows you to study Theatre and Performance together with Media. 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 both as an individual and as a member of an ensemble.
The BA in Media Studies with Theatre adds a variety of disciplinary pathways into the mix, including digital media and games, media culture, television drama and media practice, as well as equipping you with a critical understanding of the way the media works and the relationship between media, culture and society. 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 have performance-based options.
