The BA in Drama (Hons) at University of Wolverhampton is a versatile and exciting degree that offers an opportunity for you to gain experience in multiple areas of contemporary drama, theatre and performance.


The BA in Drama (Hons) at University of Wolverhampton also provides students with an opportunity to look beyond the role of the performer and consider the importance of designing, devising, directing, writing and teaching in performing arts.

You will take a practical approach to these disciplines, developing physical and vocal performance skills alongside creative thinking and your work will be underpinned by critical performance theory.

What skills will you gain?

  • Vocal skills including breath control, voice control and delivery
  • Physical skills such as stage combat and physical theatre
  • Applications of drama including workshop facilitation, theatre in education, theatre in museums and teaching experience
  • Devising skills and the ability to take an imaginative approach to performance making
  • Ability to work as a creative collaborator
  • Ability to analyse, critique and evaluate drama, theatre and performance


The course has a strong focus on employability and enterprise that leads to a diverse range of career opportunities for graduates, these include teaching, performing, directing, working as a playwright, casting agent, stage manager, technician or designer. Previous graduates are also employed in arts administration, media, marketing and management.
