Comments about BA English and Theatre Studies - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands

  • Objectives
    Within the context of a wide-ranging English and Comparative Literature course, the joint degree in English and Theatre Studies approaches drama from two directions: through the literary analysis of texts and via the understanding of playing places and performance. There is a special concern with the role of the writer in the theatre, as critic and as dramatist, in theory and in practice. Students also have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of optional modules in Theatre Studies, Creative Writing, Film Studies, History, History of Art and other departments. There are only limited opportunities for practical work within the syllabus; however, Warwick student drama is among the most active in the country. Prospective students should be motivated by a keen interest in theatre and should have some familiarity with plays in production.

For some courses, requirements are above this University minimum, so you should check the relevant course-specific entry requirements in our hard copy prospectus which you can order online or browse on our online directory. We usually ask for candidates to show a broad base of study at GCSE level (or equivalent) with passes in at least five subjects from a range of disciplines.
