About Drama at University of Exeter
The programme aims to develop an understanding of performance skills alongside a critical and imaginative engagement with the social, historical and cultural contexts of theatre. Interest and involvement in contemporary theatre are central. The programme encourages this both as a subject of research and as a practical experience through performance and community-based activities. The studio-based work also equips you with abilities to communicate effectively, to pursue creative analysis and to initiate and organise complex individual and group projects.
The degree is composed of a series of modules, most of which conclude with a presentation open to other Drama students and staff, to the University at large, or to the general public. In the early stages of the programme the emphasis is on group collaborative work. As you move through the degree this group work becomes the basis for the development of individual interests and skills. Throughout the programme all Drama students get equal opportunities and challenges to act, to direct and to write or otherwise create dramatic events..
