This degree combines theatre with the study of French, spoken by hundreds of millions of people around the world. The course offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges, and a wide range of options that will allow you to pursue your own interests.
The theatre course will allow you to build your understanding and performance skills by exploring critical and historical frameworks alongside practical workshops. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre-makers and our museum-accredited archive, the Theatre Collection.
As well as following a structured French language course, you will study literature, history, thought, politics, linguistics and culture. You will spend your third year abroad in a French-speaking environment, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge.
On your return to Bristol for your fourth year of study, you will have the chance to undertake an independent practical or written research project, or a work placement in the creative industries.
Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment as staff incorporate new research into their classes.
