Students can explore and examine the historical, philosophical, literary, performative, and cultural antecedents of theatre. This knowledge forms the basis for understanding the artistic, aesthetic, political, and ethical place of theatre in the 21st Century.

Through a mixture of core and optional modules, students curate their own journey through the programme. They can elect to specialise in routes focused on Contemporary Theatre Practice, Theatre and Performance Studies, and Technical Theatre and Production.
