This exciting and diverse degree allows you to study performance in workshop conditions while learning a language. You’ll acquire a critical and practical understanding of theatre while learning Italian from beginner level and exploring Italy’s culture and history. Core modules focus on theatre and language. You’ll study performance with reference to specific texts, events and cultural organisations in their historical, social and political contexts, and develop fundamental practical skills for the stage. You’ll also develop skills in your language of choice by studying grammar and contemporary topics relevant to the areas where that language is spoken. You’ll build on your knowledge by choosing from a wide range of optional modules on the practice, histories and industrial aspects of performance, and on the culture, history, politics and society of your language. Some language disciplines offer optional modules on the theatre of that language, allowing you to combine your subjects.
