Overview

In Year 1, students are introduced to a full range of practical performance skills and knowledge of the history and context of Drama and Performing Arts.

In Year 2, students study a number of different critical and reflective methodologies in viewing and analysing, and for creating texts and performance work. A wide range of optional modules are on offer so students may develop and pursue their own interests.

Students focus on devising group and solo performances and synthesising different artistic forms and disciplines. They have the opportunity to devise, think about, discuss and critique a wide range of professional performances and art events.

Students may create performances of any kind using the body, voice or digital technologies, in a theatre or site-specific location. They do not study texts to perform these; however, many practitioners use a text as a starting point for devising. They may also use a piece of music, image, event, short story or an environment.

In the final year, all students undertake the Extended Independent Study. Students may negotiate to present it as a performance, a dissertation of 8,000-10,000 words, or as shorter dissertation with a practical performance.

Facilities
The University offers excellent facilities for both performance and rehearsal. The Performing Arts Studios provide six bespoke spaces and offer the latest technology for student productions. The Studios are located on the King Alfred Campus close to the Performance Gymnasium and other facilities in the Bowers Building.
