School of English and Drama

Welcome to the Department of Drama

Welcome to the Department of Drama. We are one of the country's leading centres for the study of drama, theatre and performance. We have an international reputation for our high-quality research and creative practice, and our excellence in teaching.

Through a balance of practice and theory, our students learn from and collaborate with our team of high-profile practitioners, historians and theorists. Across our degree programmes, students explore a distinctively wide range of performance forms: from plays to experimental theatre, and live art to applied theatre and activism. We embed a commitment to social justice in everything we do.

The Head of Department is Professor Martin Welton.
