Course Highlights

The course is particularly appropriate if you are interested in a career in arts administration, or in running your own company in the creative industries. In Drama, you will explore play texts, theoretical writings, performance traditions and techniques, and examine the theatre's role and function in society throughout history.

Career Opportunities

So, what can you do with a business degree If you re someone who enjoys the professionalism and high-powered nature of big business, then you re likely to be considering a business degree as a stepping stone to a high-status, high-salary career. In today's world, corporate business careers are available in pretty much every sector you can think of; all industries need strong leaders, managers, financial advisors and market-savvy decision-makers. For many business graduates, however, the traditional pathways still hold a strong appeal including careers in the banking and financial sectors, consultancy, human resources and marketing roles. If a straightforward corporate career is failing to get you excited, then a business program can also give you the skills to create your own business, or to take on business and management roles within more creative industries, be that fashion, media, or even the charity sector.
