Supported by internationally-recognised staff with a wide range of expertise, you will look beyond the established boundaries of set, costume, lighting and sound design and take a total view of performance events. This Theatre and Performance Design with Drama and Theatre degree at Aberystwyth University is designed to empower you to develop your skills and capacities as a designer and theatre-maker, actively exploring what drama, theatre and performance can be now and in the future.
Across the three years of the degree you will engage you in a process of investigation and questioning that extends your critical and creative capacities and builds your practical skills. You will encounter and explore a wide range of contemporary theatre and design practices, from playhouse theatre to performance installation, from scripted drama to site-specific performance and from Shakespeare to experiments in new media.
