Acting for Stage & Screen BA (Hons)
If you’re looking to become a versatile and multi-skilled performer, and join a creative community of filmmakers, screenwriters and actors, this is the course for you.
You’ll explore acting for stage, performance and camera, with many opportunities to collaborate and build a portfolio of original work – learning to take a production from concept to performance.
We welcome students from all around the world and celebrate your vibrant, individual stories. We encourage you to embrace what’s unique about you (from languages and accents to culture and heritage), and work closely with you to develop your individual talents.
You’ll focus on six interconnected areas of study:
- Acting for screen
- Textual analysis
- Creative enterprise
- Theories, contexts and concepts
By combining theory and practical application, you’ll develop your own artistic identity – exploring acting, voice, movement and scenography to hone your techniques and build your own creative toolkit.
You’ll learn how theatre has evolved in response to the needs and aspirations of different societies, and build a broad understanding of the social, political and cultural contexts that have influenced both playwrights and performers over the years.
You’ll be taught be professional actors, casting directors, filmmakers and screenwriters, many of whom continue to work in the industry alongside teaching. And, being in London means your studies will be enhanced by field trips, professional workshops and guest talks from industry experts.
You’ll also have the opportunity to study abroad in your second year – immersing yourself in a new culture while expanding your awareness of performance and film.
