    Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre & Performative Practices) - launched for 2017/18

    The Department of Drama & Theatre Studies is pleased to introduce a new Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre and Performative Practices) in the academic year 2017/18. 

     

    The Higher Diploma in Arts (Theatre & Performative Practices) is a conversion course to Theatre-related studies for students with degrees in subjects other than Theatre or with Theatre as a minor subject. Completion of the Higher Diploma in Theatre & Performative Practices effectively converts your degree to the equivalent of an honours degree with Theatre as the main subject. 
    It is designed for non-theatre graduates who wish to upskill, gain an additional qualification in the area of Theatre & Performative Practices which will pave the way to further study at MA or PhD level.

    “Stella had been very happy for a short time, but she was incapable of learning the rules of the game. And I did exactly what I should not have done, in other words, nothing. I made every effort to see and hear nothing. It wasn’t worth the bother to me, but it should have been worth the bother. Why did nothing warn me on that September evening when Stella came to us?”
