The (Hons) Drama and Theatre degree at University of Lincoln interrogates practice and theory side by side, creating a broad, interconnected body of knowledge and experience for our students. Throughout the programme, students can engage with theatrical histories, traditions and practices; critical and cultural theory; performance technique; devising, making and analysis, as well as project design, management and vocationally-facing practice.

There are opportunities to participate in a variety of productions, collaborate with other departments and external companies, work with academics on research projects and perform at national and international festivals.

Your Future Career

Graduates can develop the skills and knowledge relevant to a variety of roles within the theatre, such as actor, director, playwright, producer, stage manager and technician, as well as in related professions in publishing, marketing, venue programming and work in television, film and radio. Some go on to study further at postgraduate level or undertake qualifications in teaching.
