This course combines theatre with the study of French, the first language of some 90 million speakers around the world. The course offers an enriching experience with exciting intellectual challenges. The theatre course will allow you to build your understanding and performance skills by exploring critical and historical frameworks alongside practical workshops. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre-makers, as well as our museum-accredited theatre archive, the Theatre Collection. You will study units in French and spend your third year abroad, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge. On your return to Bristol for your fourth year of study, you will have the chance to undertake an independent practical or written research project, or a work placement in the creative industries. Both departments encourage strong synergy between research and teaching, resulting in a vibrant learning environment as staff incorporate new research in their teaching.
