We offer BAs in Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies and Drama Studies as well as an exciting master's programme in London's Theatre. We have a thriving calendar of events with some of the world’s leading performance makers and academics in regular attendance. All of our courses combine theoretical, historical and practical approaches to the subject, which are brought to life through our close connections with the London theatre scene.
In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, over 80% of all our research was ranked as “world leading” or “internationally excellent”.
Teaching is research led and designed to prepare students for a range of opportunities including careers as independent artists, directors, theatre or stage managers, community workers, event managers or further academic study.
The Department’s rich and interdisciplinary research culture includes specialisms in contemporary, experimental and early modern theatre, live art practice, performance ethnography, mobility and site studies, sound and radio, creative writing, food studies, performance as social action, and more.
