Overview

These subject areas share an interest in many of the media through which writers and performers interact to create drama and narrative (TV; film; radio; online). Studying them as Joint Honours is therefore full of possibility. Both are ‘practice-based’: you learn primarily through ‘doing’ – through performing, making theatre and writing.

If you are looking for academic study primarily through the development of creative, practical work – and if telling stories and making, thinking and writing for and about theatre and performance are where your interests lie – then this Joint Honours programme may be your perfect choice.

Career opportunities

The opportunity to be introduced to current industry contacts in Screenwriting is an essential element of the progression of your work across the three years, giving you a unique insight into how your skills can transfer into employment within the media industry. There are many career path options including working in the digital arts industries, in film and television and arts organisations, and taking up university and school teaching or postgraduate academic and creative writing courses.

There are excellent career opportunities for Drama & Performance graduates. These are both in drama-related areas, such as theatre, education, and the media, and in a wide range of other fields of employment made accessible through skills learned on the course in presentation, performance, critical thinking and writing, creativity, confidence and communication. Former students often set up their own businesses, for example as small scale touring theatre companies or drama education providers.

Past students are now working as actors, producers, stage managers and directors for employers across the areas of theatre, TV, radio and film. Teaching and lecturing are very popular career choices for our graduates, as are arts administration and marketing. A proportion of our students always progress to postgraduate study to gain higher academic or professional qualifications.
