Drama and English BA(Hons): After you graduate

Careers and progression

Kingston's drama and English graduates work in the creative industries as actors, writers, directors, stand-up comedians, outreach workers, technicians, producers and events managers.

In addition to pursuing careers as writers, they work in publishing, journalism, advertising and marketing, arts management, new media, education, community arts, the public relations industry, business, and therapeutic fields.

Our alumni have published novels in a variety of countries as well as gaining employment in a range of industries where accurate writing is valued. We have industry links with publishers, theatre professionals and literary agents, as well as working writers in a variety of fields.

In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate. 

As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:

  • placements;
  • working or studying abroad;
  • volunteering;
  • peer mentoring roles; and
  • internship opportunities within and outside the University.

In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
