Bath Spa University Drama

The Drama programme offers specialised, creative arts and combined study pathways for students who wish to explore the immensity of drama as both a performance medium and an applied subject. Drama provides you with a range of exciting modules to choose from. These explore drama from the perspectives of making theatre and performance, text study and applied theatre. Drama is a broad based programme that allows you to identify where your place in the immense world of theatre and performance might be. It is not a vocational training course.

This course will equip you with writing, presentational, communication and collaborative skills invaluable in many professional and vocational areas. This course is to prepare for careers where drama-based skills are in demand and for further studies in drama, including drama teachings; to make theatre and performance with others and to watch, think and write about drama.
