Our BA (Hons) Drama will help you grow into a confident, versatile and exciting drama practitioner, whichever field you hope to work in.
With a strong focus on performance, you’ll work on public productions and smaller-scale projects, exploring practices from the 20th century onwards as well as devising your own original productions.
You’ll be encouraged to create innovative and daring performance practice and develop expertise in group collaboration, alongside your own solo performances.
With our optional modules, you can choose to weight your studies towards 80% performance and practice or specialise further towards a particular career, such as Applied Theatre, dramatherapy or backstage production skills in lighting, sound, video or theatre administration and marketing.
Our close links with local companies, including venues such as Cambridge Junction, will help you make contact with industry leaders and gain work experience in professional theatre environments, both backstage and front of house.
During your first year of study, you’ll work on a performance at Covent Garden Studio as soon as you arrive, and then at our on-campus Mumford Theatre in your second Semester. Your second year will begin with another major production for the mumford Theatre and, in your third year, at a commercial venue in Cambridge. Besides these major productions, the majority of your compulsory and optional modules will also be based on and assessed by practical or performative work. For your course-ending major project, you can even propose a project that is 100% practical.
Our internships and optional modules will give you the chance to experience the production side of running a professional touring theatre company, such as with the award-winning New International Encounter. Outside of the course, you’ll find opportunities for work experience at the Mumford, as well as the chance to see regular performances by professional touring companies and musicians. You can also volunteer for our Anglia Ruskin Community Theatre Company, putting on workshops and performances at local schools to get more experience of being part of a professional ensemble.
All this experience will make it easier for you to find work with theatre companies when you graduate – or even to create your own. One of our recent students, Oliver Scott, formed Momentum Theatre after graduating, and now leads acting workshops as well as being a radio presenter, director and professional actor.
We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects, internships or placements.

Studying drama will give you the ideal training for any position that requires creativity, self-reliance, imagination, teamwork and the ability to organise both yourself and others.
Our BA (Hons) Drama degree will give you practical experience as a performer or stage technician, and the academic understanding needed to be a director or a teacher. We offer directly vocational modules in Applied Theatre, production skills, workshop leadership and showreel preparation.
If you have an interest in arts therapy, you could go on to take our MA Dramatherapy after you graduate.
