Throughout the year you can participate in theatre visits and workshops led by professional artists/companies and field trips, both at home and abroad. When you arrive, you will be guided through the skills you need to become a practitioner and scholar, and will gradually learn how to plan, execute and evaluate your own projects. We encourage autonomous learning that is reflected not only in the delivery of modules but also in assessment and attendance guidelines at all levels of study. Professionalism is a key factor throughout this process.
All the Drama and Theatre Studies lecturers at Chester continue to practice either as professional performers in a variety of contexts, or as scholars and researchers. Some do both!
Our resident graduate companies, 2engage and the newly formed Performing Pathways, enhance the student experience by working alongside us, and providing expertise in performance management, educational and applied drama.
We have overseas links with theatre departments in Finland and Japan, links with SOS Children’s Villages in Malawi and a tradition of field trips to eastern Europe (Educational Drama Association of Romania, the Pedagogical Drama Association of Hungary).
Drama and Theatre Studies share an arts-based site withDance, Popular Music, Performing Arts, Fine Art,Photography, Graphic Design and Journalism. This provides a unique opportunity for working with others across the arts.
