The Theatre Studies and Creative Writing (Honours) BA degree offered at the University of Westminster will help you develop a deep understanding of key periods, themes, styles and techniques in theatre studies and hone your creative writing skills. The degree will equip you to utilise your learning in both creative and critical forms, whilst developing your general analytical skills and critical thinking, and bringing your written and spoken academic English to a sophisticated level.
You will have the opportunity to examine theatrical, performance and critical texts (in the broadest understanding of the term) of all periods, from the Early Modern to the present day. This examination vitally includes trips to the theatre, to performances and to see creative artists speak about their work.
You will have the chance to make extensive use of London to enhance your learning environment, by visiting its theatres, performance spaces, galleries, museums, and by taking part in active and vibrant cultural debates. The course takes in a wide range of writers, thinkers and performers, thus allowing students to get a detailed and coherent sense of the fields of theatre and performance studies.
