BA in English and Theatre Studies (single honours)

workshop theatre students

The Workshop Theatre is an integral part of the School of English at the University Leeds. The English and Theatre Studies single honours degree programme is particularly designed for those students who wish to combine an interest in English with the study of theatre in workshop conditions. About half your time is taken up with practical, performance-based work and considering theories of performance, using the resources of the Workshop Theatre. The rest of the scheme is composed of modules taught by staff in English Language and Literature.

As with Single Honours English students, you will have a substantial element of choice in shaping your personal scheme. In your second and third years, you may choose a number of Options from within the English Literature and the Theatre Studies areas. Additionally, in your third year you create you own 'practical essay', a theatre project of your own devising.
