About

In your first year of  Theatre and English course from University of Bristol you will learn how to analyse performance and develop practical skills in theatre. In your second and third years you will choose options that deepen your critical and practical expertise, culminating in independent study, which can take the form of group or individual performance, an extended essay or an industrial placement.

For English you will study a broad range of literature written in English from the medieval period to the present day. This will include the close, analytical study of poetry, fiction and drama, and critical and theoretical approaches to studying literature.

In years one and two the study of successive periods of English literature is complemented by work on individual authors, topics and genres. In your second and third years you will be able to choose from a range of stimulating options and research-led special subjects, including creative writing. Year three is fully optional and includes the opportunity to write a dissertation on a topic of your own choosing.
