The BA (Hons) Drama at Bishop Grosseteste University focuses on contemporary drama – creating, adapting, devising and developing new work with fresh ideas.
The ultimate goal of the programme is not to train actors, however, a substantial amount of acting is part of the programme at all levels, and a Level 4 module, Acting Skills, which focuses on Stanislavski’s acting techniques, is meant to lay a firm foundation for this. And because we believe that there is more into drama than acting, you will acquire a variety of skills – intellectual, practical and transferable skills – that can prepare you for the life after your programme at BGU.
You will have the opportunity to take part in productions throughout your time, which will enrich and enhance your experience at BGU. By the end of the course, you’ll leave us equipped with a wide range of transferable skills, which can be taken to a broad set of public, private, commercial and third-sector settings.
Throughout our drama courses, you will acquire a number of useful skills which can be transferred to the workplace, such as good communication skills, the ability to work effectively in groups and as an individual, good organisational and decision-making skills, effective analytical skills, and the ability to apply theory to practice.
Possible future careers for Drama graduates could include Theatre management, Drama therapy, or in Teaching and academic careers. All Drama graduates may also find employment in the public or private sectors, in the creative industries, within the media, tourism and leisure or with education.
