Course Introduction

Drama and Education is designed for students wishing to become either drama teachers or applied theatre practitioners. As an alternative to a general drama degree, it provides subject knowledge and skills required for employment.

Drama and Education is an ideal pathway if you wish to become a drama teacher in a secondary school or further education setting. As an alternative to a general first degree in Drama or Theatre Arts, the programme will equip you with the subject knowledge and skills required by drama teachers. It also offers you the possibility to progress on to a career in community theatre, drama facilitation and other sectors of applied theatre.

The degree has been developed in consultation with secondary school drama teachers and applied theatre practitioners ensuring that it will provide you with the understanding required to deliver GCSE, A level and BTEC syllabi in Drama.

It will also develop your practical skills in devising and directing, writing and adaptation, workshop facilitation and project management and delivery. These technical drama skills will enable you to contribute to both curricular and extra-curricular work in schools and equip you with the skills necessary to fulfil the role of a workshop leader in a range of applied theatre settings.
