The programme offers embodied learning which brings together movement, acting and singing with both theory and practice in a unique interdisciplinary environment. Your first academic year provides a foundation of skills training and understanding of the history and contexts within which musical theatre is made. The second academic year continues to balance discussion of how musical theatre works are put together and how they impact audiences, with opportunities to develop practically. In addition, there is a range of choices through which you can begin to personalise your experience and there are opportunities to study abroad in America. The final academic year offers further opportunity for specialisation alongside preparation for employment. External experiences such as internships and collaborations are accompanied by a directed production project and an independent supervised project in a field of your choice. The University offers excellent facilities for both performance and rehearsal. The Performing Arts Studios provide six bespoke spaces and offer the latest technology for student productions. The Studios are located on the King Alfred Campus close to the Performance Gymnasium and other facilities in the Bowers Building.
