Drama allows you to combine a strong practical emphasis with the study of the theory, history and social significance of drama, complemented by detailed study of dramatic literature and aspects of visual and technical design.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Literature, Drama and Creative Writing.

We find that students often want to know how best they might prepare for university and especially what they might read before they get here. While we don't have a set reading list for you, as we would most like you to be reading widely, following your own leads and interests and trying to stretch yourself by straying into areas and writings that are new to you, we can recommend some books that are important introductions to literary studies in general. You might like to dip, or even plunge, into one or more of these books. You can browse all available preparatory materials via the buttons on the right.

Arriving at UEA is an excellent time to like, follow, pin, love and more.
