About this course

1.0year

Full-time | 2020

This top-up Honours degree offers students a unique opportunity to study in a small group and explores the core elements of theatre practice in the performing arts. The course allows students to immerse themselves in all aspects of training, exploring cutting edge performances and practitioners and enabling them to find their niche in the creative arts. Building upon their skills and knowledge, they will be challenged to create something radically different using their own artistic vision, to become a bold and autonomous practitioner.
This programme develops the level and application of specialist skills and knowledge required in the Performing Arts profession, along with a critical understanding of issues relating to the study of Acting, Dance and Musical Theatre. Students build on their own particular area(s) of expertise in assignment-based and project-based work.
