Description

This Drama programme from the University of Greenwich 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.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To further students' understanding of drama within social, historical and cultural contexts through practice, research and experience
  • To encourage critical and creative engagement with the history and theory of theatre to enhance understanding of contemporary theatre environments and practices
  • To advance knowledge of a range of theatre practitioners and specific performance practices and encourage reflection on the inter-relationship of theory and practice
  • To encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches to performance research and performance making
  • To prepare students for the application of their skills and knowledge in professional environments through public performance and community engagement
  • To develop transferable skills, including presentation and articulation, analysis and critical reading, research, bibliographic construction, word processing, project management, collaboration, and community liaison.
