This innovative programme is for students wishing to pursue a career as a comic writer and/or comedy performer. You'll have the opportunity to develop your intellectual and creative skills at the highest level, drawing on the expertise of our academics as well as industry specialists.
Through a study of comedy and satire across time and cultures, you'll develop historical, social, political and cultural knowledge. This degree balances theory and practice, allowing you to select from a range of options to pursue your chosen specialism, including playwriting, stand'up, monologue and experimental performance/live art.
Many of the department’s academic staff are also industry professionals – writers, directors, performers and dramaturges. They will be joined by professional comics and writers to help you hone your craft.
