Theatre and Performance as your Major The Theatre and Performance Major will help you master a range of techniques for exploring theatre and its texts. With opportunities to engage actively through written and practical exercises, you will explore the rich cultural histories of the locations in which we work. You will focus on understanding and using a range of concepts, methods and approaches for probing the social, cultural, historical and geographical contexts of texts, plays, performances and theatrical trends. Our unique approach to your personal, professional and intellectual development means you can look forward to developing a range of specific and transferable skills for independent critical and creative practice (especially if you take the option of a Professional Training placement). You will thus graduate with an international and crossdisciplinary perspective on theatre and performance. Film Studies as your Minor Cinema is used throughout the world as a means of documenting, depicting, and shaping societies. Film Studies as a Minor will therefore complement any Major in giving you the ability to analyse issues critically and place them in their proper historical, international and cultural contexts. It is also one of the most enjoyable and stimulating academic disciplines to study.
