This is one of the most dynamic, flexible and varied English and Drama Joint Honours programmes on offer in the UK. Growing from strength to strength since its foundation over 25 years ago, the programme draws fully on the premier reputations in teaching and research enjoyed by both contributing departments.
Core courses, specially designed for English & Drama students, are taught by a joint team of lecturers from both departments; they demonstrate our commitment to the stimulating and cohesive academic experience for Joint Honours students.
The combined resources are outstanding: over 50 members of academic staff, a range of visiting experts, the purpose-built Caryl Churchill Theatre and rehearsal studios staffed by highly-skilled technicians, a resident professional theatre company, an excellent library, and professional links with arts organisations in London.
Students choose from a vast array of optional courses in Drama and English literature, from Shakespeare to Stanislavski, from science fiction to Japanese Noh Theatre, and from playwriting to poetic practice. Throughout their degree, students encounter a variety of learning experiences, from practical workshops to essay tutorials. We enable our students to make discoveries and unlock their potential, whether in creative work or in critical modes of expression.
