Modules

This degree approaches theatre from two directions: through the literary analysis of texts and via the understanding of playing places and performance. The teaching is shared between the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies and the School of Theatre Studies. The Theatre Studies modules examine developments in theatrical theory and practice emphasising, wherever appropriate, those movements from the past that are responsible for creating the theatre of the present.
