This is a combined honours course, where you study Drama alongside Japanese Studies. At Brookes, we harness studentsâ?? passion for drama. You have the opportunity to perform in a range of dramas and plays, study the history of English theatre from the medieval period to the present and develop as a critical thinker and practitioner. You engage with key historical and critical questions about the theatre and performance. What did it mean to perform in 1600? Why does Victorian melodrama contain characters and plots suitable for Hollywood blockbusters? Japan is a fascinating, complex and vibrant country with the third largest economy in the world.
