Theatre and Performance Studies - University of Bristol

The theatre and performance studies course builds your understanding and practical skills by exploring critical and historical frameworks alongside practical workshops. There are opportunities to engage with professional theatre makers and our museum-accredited archive, the Theatre Collection. In your first year you will learn how to analyse performance and plays while developing practical skills in theatre design, lighting, costume and production. In subsequent years you will choose from a range of options that will deepen your analytical, critical, practical and historical expertise. Your degree culminates in an independent study project. This could be a group or individual performance, a dissertation, an extended essay or an industrial placement. We have strong links with the creative industries, and placement partners have included the Bristol Old Vic, MAYK, In Between Time and Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory. Students can also undertake placements elsewhere, including overseas.
