This programme allows students to specialise in theatre performance and theory while also incorporating courses from a variety of other subject pathways.
Drama at Greenwich offers a grounding in the history, theory and practice of theatre to enhance students' understanding of contemporary theatre environments and practices. Modules range widely from those that study dramatic literature and history to those that engage with specific performance practices such as applied drama, physical theatre and playwriting. All courses combine theory and practice and provide students with opportunities to develop their performance skills, improve their writing and public speaking, acquire technical expertise, and experiment with new approaches to theatre performance and research. Students engage in theatre-making as writers, technicians, directors and performers throughout the degree.
Drama improves skills in communication, self-discipline, research and creative teamwork - all qualities increasingly valued by employers in many fields.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
