As one of the most wide-ranging, multi-faceted and interdisciplinary of subjects in the arts and humanities, Drama and Theatre naturally lends itself to joint honours study. On this programme, you encounter aspects of drama, theatre and performance drawn from a wide range of historical epochs, languages and cultures. You explore these in theory and practice, bringing your own specialist
areas of study into play in both the seminar and the rehearsal room.
English at Kent is challenging, flexible, and wide-ranging. It covers both traditional areas (such as Shakespeare or Dickens) and newer fields
such as American literature, creative writing, postcolonial literature
and recent developments in literary theory. Studying Drama alongside English Literature, gives you the freedom to explore your passion for theatre while developing skills associated with the study of literature.Drama
