Content

Year 1: The first year will focus on two subject areas. Reading the stage: will introduce you to different critical frames of performance theory and analysis, facilitating the application of these to contemporary performance practice. Theatre and society: will explore the historical and contemporary role of theatre in society, giving you an understanding of some social, political and economic issues affecting theatre practice in a range of historical and geographical locations including Scotland.

You will also study two other subjects in year 1 according to your interests: see Degrees in Arts, Science and Social Sciences.

Year 2: The following year, you will pursue a historical investigation into theatre and dramaturgical practices. Classical to modern: aims to provide you with a historical and critical survey of the dominant forms of theatre practice in Europe before 1900. Modernism to postdramatic: introduces you to a number of European and American practitioners whose radical approaches to acting, directing, scenography and dramaturgy have reoriented and redefined not only performance but also our understanding of the theatrical event.

You will also study one or two other subjects in year 2 according to your interests: see Degrees in Arts, Science and Social Sciences.

Years 3 and 4: If you successfully complete the courses in first and second years, you may progress to Honours (years three and four). Theatre Studies is available as either Single Honours or Joint Honours. The number of core courses and optional courses you take depends on whether you opt for Single or Joint Honours. If you choose Single Honours, you will also write a 6,000-word dissertation. Teaching is largely by seminar and workshop.
