If you are looking for a radical and innovative approach to design and technical theatre in the context of theatre and performance, then this Joint Honours Theatre and Performance Design with Drama and Theatre degree at Aberystwyth University is for you.


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.
