Traditionally theatre and film scholarship incorporates such diverse discourses as art and literary theory, cultural and feminist studies, social and political science, anthropology and psychology.
Theatre practice focuses on physical and verbal expression, on the body and the voice, on spatial relations and on the geography of the stage.
Film practice as performance is closely related to work in the theatre, but film production is its own craft, which in this department is facilitated by digital technology.
The Department of Theatre and Film Studies offers undergraduate courses in both theatre and film to fulfil the requirements for a B.A. See Courses.
Three postgraduate degrees are offered: B.A.(Hons), M.A., and Ph.D.
The Graduate Diploma in Arts offers people who already hold a Bachelor's degree an opportunity to study theatre and film in depth and can serve as a qualification for entry into further postgraduate studies.
