Our philosophy

Drama Department icon In the ten years since its foundation the Drama department at Kingston has established a national and international reputation for both teaching and research.

Our substantial academic team, have established reputations as performance makers, playwrights, actors, cultural critics, dramaturgs and theoreticians. Our interests range across contemporary, popular, devised and early modern theatre, alongside cultural policy, applied theatre, modernist theatre, creative writing, and performance as social intervention.

In our Drama department staff and students work together closely on courses that combine the best in practical and theoretical approaches to the field of theatre and performance.

Kingston also offers the opportunity to combine your undergraduate studies in Drama with an unusually wide range of other subjects including Creative Writing, Dance, English Literature, History, Film, Studies.
