Studying drama helps you develop as an individual, with a group and also creatively.

You will explore and apply your knowledge of the process of creating and developing drama and theatre and also learn performance skills. 

Whether you prefer performing or being back stage drama can develop your confidence, communication and teamwork skills and if you are involved in planning or organising a performance then these skills can be useful in many jobs.

The skills you gain from doing drama can lead to careers such as performing arts, media, business, law, advertising, sales, hospitality and tourism.
