Description:Take advantage of UEA’s strengths in creative writing and drama to immerse yourself in all aspects of the reading, writing and staging of plays. You will explore creative writing for each of the major dramatic media – theatre, cinema, television and radio. You will be introduced to the specific conventions, formats and techniques of scriptwriting for different forms, and will learn by writing scenes and short scripts under the tuition of professional playwrights and other experts. You’ll also study the history of dramatic literature and performance, and develop practical and critical skills, adding greater depth to your writing.

Working alongside students on other programmes, you will develop your writing skills in the context of different aspects of theatre work, including acting, rehearsal and production methods. You’ll be able to take part in production and practical project work in all three years, and have access to the same performance and placement opportunities as single honours drama students
