Theatre studies is a relatively new academic discipline now offered in many universities around the world. This degree supports the study and research of all subjects relating to theatre, including drama and performance. One of the essential questions asked is “What is theatre?” By addressing this question you engage in both a theoretical and practical understanding of
the cultural significance of theatre.
