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.
