Kingston University London

Course Introduction

**Why choose this course?**

This combined dance and drama degree will allow you to combine critical and creative practice, giving you the skills to master physical performance in both subjects.

On this course there is no barrier between theory and practice: theory will help you understand and make the most of practice, while practice is used to shed light on theory. The degree is designed to allow you to develop your own identities as informed dance and theatre'makers. By studying a wide variety of practices independently and with others, you will gain knowledge of the industry as a whole, and learn how your interests might fit into the bigger performing arts picture.

**Foundation year ' Humanities & Arts**

This course will provide you with the academic and transferable skills you need to study an undergraduate degree in any of the humanities or arts. At Kingston these include Creative Writing, Dance, English Literature, English Language and History.

Throughout the year'long course, you can study a range of these subjects, allowing you to get a better idea of which ones you prefer. It'll guide you in the direction of a humanities or arts degree that you're particularly interested in. The foundation year will develop your independent study skills and help you to better understand your academic ability, a potential career path and how to develop the skills that employers look for in graduates.
