Drama and Theatre Arts BA(Hons): Course features

What this course offers you

  • We believe that practical and academic study in drama complement each other. We approach drama as a subject where creativity and theoretical understanding nurture each other, and their connection feeds all aspects of our teaching, learning and assessment. Consequently, we deliver our drama degree through a range of methods, including practical workshops, seminars and lectures. Our students also benefit from a variety of assessment methods, including performances, portfolios, essays, presentations, critical reflection and performance essays.
  • Our team of drama lecturers have a wealth of professional experience in performance practice, theatre criticism and education. Playwright Winsome Pinnock, for example - Alfred Fagon award winner and the first black British female playwright to have a play staged at the National Theatre - is one of our associate professors. Colin Chambers, who was literary manager of the Royal Shakespeare Company for many years, is a professor emeritus at Kingston.
  • You'll have regular opportunities to create and perform your own work, both at the University and further afield. See links with business and industry.
  • Our drama degree is consistently rated one of the top courses in London for overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey, including top ratings by undergraduates for our assessment and feedback.
  • Throughout this degree you'll receive excellent preparation for employment in the creative industries, as well as the transferable, degree-level skills needed to create and analyse theatre and performance.
  • You'll graduate from the degree with a rigorous understanding of the history of theatre and the ability to situate the art form within complex social, historical and cultural contexts.
  • You'll develop greatly in terms of understanding how identities are reflected and inflected in drama. Our programme explores a wide range of forms, from the mainstream to the avant-garde, and covers the world of theatre - both local and global.
