Subject

Theatre studies

**Why Warwick?**
The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards.

Today, more than 27,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you.

**The course**

Theatre has the power to question and challenge ideas and beliefs. It helps people consider the way they live their lives and how their actions affect others. It brings into sharp focus our impact upon the world and how we might effect changes for the better. On this course you'll explore the radical and revolutionary artistic power of theatre and entertainment, linking this to today’s global challenges. You’ll think creatively and embrace new opinions, and you’ll develop your experience by completing professional skills certificates as part of your course.

You have the opportunity to spend part of your second year studying abroad at our partner institution, Monash University, home to the world-leading Monash Sustainable Development Institute. Warwick’s vibrant student drama scene also gives you opportunities to get involved with many different kinds of production through our theatre student societies, with projects at Warwick Arts Centre (a core partner of the Department), the National Student Drama Festival, and the Edinburgh Festival.

You'll automatically be enrolled on the three-year course. However you have the option to change to a four-year course with an intercalated year in your third year. During the intercalated year, you may pursue a study abroad programme or a work placement (subject to you meeting departmental academic requirements).
