The Theatre and Performance Studies programme Studies at the University of Warwick takes pride in its national and international reputation for research and teaching excellence.
As a student, you will be taught by world-leading scholars, industry professionals and artists who are as passionate about the power of theatre and performance as you are. You’ll explore how drama, theatre and performance are used to share stories, to laugh, to feel, to understand more deeply, and to change things.
You’ll have the ability to curate your own distinctive degree, on a course that’s designed to empower you. The foundational first-year consists of four core modules which balance theory and practice. The second and third years are defined by optionality with the opportunity to select from a wide range of modules designed by our diverse team of specialist staff.
