Kingston University London

Course Introduction

**Why choose this course?**

This course provides the opportunity to combine two subjects which have historically been popular both at Kingston University and across the sector. Do you want to gain knowledge and understanding of drama and English and to explore the synergies between them? Are you interested in the theatre but keen to study other literary forms? Then this is the course for you.

It'll provide you with the knowledge, understanding and experience of the theatre as a cultural institution, through the study of drama, literature, dramatic theory and performance practice. The course is delivered in a dynamic, challenging and supportive environment and students benefit from their own dedicated studio and rehearsal facilities as well as from Kingston's proximity to some of the world's great theatres.
