Training Opportunity

BA Drama and Film Studies

BA Drama and Film Studies will give you the opportunity to benefit from our teaching and research in Drama while focusing on the study of film and television.

You'll take courses on theatre and film history and theory, as well as practical courses in filmmaking, benefiting from teaching informed by recent innovations in theatre, performance and film studies, and by historical practices.

We also offer the opportunity to choose film options from a variety of course units, and to study video-making.

Our comprehensive facilities include the purpose-built Martin Harris Centre, home to the John Thaw Studio, a fully staffed, adaptable performance, rehearsal and workshop space.

You will also be able to draw inspiration from the creative beating heart of the city itself, home to countless ground-breaking arts organisations and events - from Manchester International Festival, the world's first festival of original work, to HOME, the largest multidisciplinary arts centre outside of the capital.

You can also take advantage of strong links to partner organisations throughout the city, including TiPP (Theatre in Prisons and Probation Research and Development Centre), based here at the University, and Community Arts North West.

You also can engage with professional practitioners working in the cultural industries through your coursework and through extracurricular events.
