Course Description

  • Collaborate and work with like-minded people to explore the full breadth of drama in both theory and practice
  • Drama achieved more than 90% overall satisfaction as rated by final-year undergraduate students in the 2018 National Student Survey
  • Enjoy opportunities to act, direct and devise performance work, while studying a range of theatrical traditions and critical theory
  • Gain core skills in communication and team building valued in a variety of employment contexts including the theatre, the creative industries, education and beyond
  • Benefit from excellent working partnerships with local venues, festivals and theatre companies

Ever since the ancient Greeks took to the stage, drama has been used as a mirror, a sounding board or a radical tool to invite or require a society to confront the most pressing (and often most controversial) issues of the day. Our Drama degree allows you — as a passionate individual who cares deeply about these issues and gets a buzz from working together with like-minded people — to explore your own creative world through performance.

Drama at Winchester offers a rich combination of practical workshops and critical theory delivered by an experienced team of academics well versed in the arts of devising, directing, acting and studying theatre. We have excellent working partnerships with local venues, festivals and theatre companies. You also have the chance to acquire an impressive range of creative, critical and practical skills that will open the door to a future in the performing arts world and other graduate careers.
