Overview

Drama at DMU is a dynamic program informed by a mix of current scholarly thinking, historical theatrical traditions and contemporary methods of performance making. It offers you the opportunity to learn about the subject in a variety of ways by working with professional researchers, visiting practitioners, undertaking placements and internships, getting involved in professional performances, going on theatre trips at home and abroad, and showcasing your work to a variety of audiences. Studying Drama at DMU is an excellent preparation for students who wish to seek employment in a range of arts and industry related careers or to continue into postgraduate level study.

Creative Writing and Drama both study creative uses of language, and Drama and English emphasises both disciplines’ interest in written texts. Arts and Festivals Management and Drama combines studying creative performance with the theory and practice of managing arts industries, while Drama and Media reflects the importance of media in contemporary performance.
