Focusing on academic enquiry and also offering opportunity for practical production experience, this course enables the student to appreciate the connections and differences between theatre and film. It can act as a stepping stone to a variety of careers. BA/BA (Hons) Theatre and Film Theatre, film and television are at the heart of the creative industries globally and make a significant contribution to the UK economy. This course offers you the opportunity to study these creative industries as both commercial and artistic enterprises. The academic scope of this course enables students to understand the histories of theatre and cinema and related industries, and explores the critical debates concerning the cultural and political influences of theatre and film. The course also explores the spaces of the stage and studio, stage and screen performances and the genres, narratives and authorship of plays and screenplays. We also study the economics and management of theatre and cinema within the creative industries. The study of these two artistically and economically important cultural forms side by side enables students of this course to appreciate the connections and distinctions between them and to meet the challenges of employment in a society in which the creative industries play an important role. In Year One, modules provide a broad understanding of how theatre and film work as creative industries, introduce the study of theatre and film narrative and performance, and provide experience of creative production. Year Two examines questions of genre and creativity alongside the theory and practice of stage performance. Years Three and Four look at key periods, movements and practitioners in theatre and film drama, alongside modules in areas such as adaptation, comedy, playwriting and Hollywood cinema.
