This course combines theatre with the study of Portuguese. Both departments enjoy a strong reputation for teaching and research and this course provides a particularly strong intellectual challenge with a cosmopolitan perspective. 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 also take units in Portuguese, the official language of nine countries. The rise of the Brazilian and Angolan economies, and recent major sporting events in Brazil, mean Portuguese speakers are increasingly in demand. You will spend your third year abroad, extending your language skills and cultural knowledge. On returning 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.
