Course overview

This degree gives you the opportunity to develop your creative talents in and drama and film. It benefits from outstanding facilities for performance, as well as from our industry-standard resources for digital video and 16mm film production, alongside professional tuition in screenwriting and film journalism.

Course content in both subjects provides an excellent balance between theory and practice, allowing you to engage with essential critical and aesthetic approaches to film and drama, and, to apply those creatively to a range of practical projects in both areas. This is a challenging and stimulating course of study that will take you from the close study of texts and films, to the analysis and practice of performance and film production.

The course provides opportunities to screen or perform your work on and off-campus, to undertake commissioned work, and to engage with the film and theatre industries through self-generated work placements, encouraging the development of critical knowledge alongside transferable and vocational skills.

You will take half of your degree from drama and half from film studies.

Assessment is carried out via a very broad mix of methods including critical essays, reports, oral presentations, studio and public performance, an individual major project plus a range of practice-based research techniques.

As part of your learning you will be encouraged to seek work placements and to generate commissioned work in a range of modules. These form part of the assessment where undertaken. You will also be required to give critical evaluations of creative work undertaken and in 'crits' where you will present and defend your own work. Each year you will undertake Personal Development Planning (PDP) which encourages reflection on progress to date and the achievement of transferable skills and knowledge.
