  • BA (Hons), Sandwich , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
**If you love the texts behind the drama as much as the actual performances themselves, studying Drama and English Literature together gives you the opportunity to gain a richer understanding of the two subjects. The aim is to get you to investigate drama through practical performance, and to develop your appreciation of the startling variety and complexity of English literature.** On the course you’ll be able to look at contemporary approaches to drama in great depth, while studying English Literature. Our links with Slung Low, IOU Productions and Northern Broadsides mean you’ll be able to work alongside internationally known companies. You could also meet and work with guests like Professor Sir Patrick Stewart, John Britton, Andrew Morrish and Nicolás Núñez. We want to help you draw on your own creativity to produce intelligent, thoughtful and innovative work. We’ll encourage you to develop principles and approaches that could carry you through your chosen career and help you reach your full potential. In your English Literature studies, you'll study some of the most renowned writing, along with some lesser-known but equally inspiring works. You’ll have the chance to develop an understanding of the major movements of prose and poetry, and we’ll focus on building your analytical skills to help you assess, question, debate and persuade. They’re all skills that employers are looking for. While you're here you will go and see how the professionals do it. National touring theatre and performance companies regularly perform in Huddersfield’s Lawrence Batley Theatre, as well as venues in nearby Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield. We aim to make it a rich and inspiring three years for you to develop your creativity and understanding.

Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!
