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.
