**Why Warwick?** We’re a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. Today more than 25,000 students thrive across four faculties, which feature over 70 research centres and institutes. We’re a constant presence in the rankings of the UK’s and the world’s greatest universities, and the most targeted institution nationally by the UK’s top 100 employers (The Graduate Market in 2017, High Fliers Research Ltd). All of this means you’ll be welcomed to a safe, energetic and cosmopolitan campus with flexible, well-equipped study spaces to help you stretch yourself personally, professionally and academically. Whether you want to be a front-runner in a fast-moving graduate job market, or to make a difference and change the world, we want you here. **The course** We believe that theatre and performance occurs not only in theatre buildings, but also in cities, on streets, in rituals and daily life, and in spaces real, virtual and imagined. This course allows you to engage creatively and critically with contemporary social, political and aesthetic issues through the lens of Theatre and Performance Studies. You will learn in an intimate and supportive environment, taught by academics at the forefront of internationally significant research. Teaching is delivered through both practical and seminar-based modules (e.g. Performance and Contemporary City, Food and Performance, African and South African Theatre, Intercultural Performance, Writing for Performance, Dramaturgy, Marketing, Theatre History and Historiography) and you can also pursue individual research projects. You will also benefit from our outstanding resources and connections to the theatre industries and creative sector, with visits and guest workshops by renowned practitioners. You will develop valuable transferable research, analytical, organisational and communication skills alongside the ability to think and work creatively.
