Delivered through a dynamic online platform, this course has been meticulously crafted to ensure learners get the most immersive experience possible, right from the comfort of their homes.

From understanding the essence of drama and theatre to exploring the iconic stages of classical theatres that span from Greece to the Renaissance, the course covers it all. Students embark on a voyage through time, tracing the evolution of theatre, studying various movements that have shaped modern theatre, and immersing themselves in the tales of notable playwrights whose works have left an indelible mark on the world of theatre.

The Drama And Theatre Studies Diploma is not just about understanding the history and the classics; it is equally about the art that breathes life into scripts – the art of acting. As part of this diploma, students gain insight into what it takes to embody a character, the nuances of emotion, and the techniques that distinguish good acting from great acting.

Behind every successful play or drama, there is a visionary, and in theatre, that visionary is often the director. This course provides a detailed look into the intricate world of directing and production, throwing light on how ideas are birthed, nurtured, and then brought to life on stage.

In a world that is constantly evolving, so is theatre. It reflects societal changes, challenges norms, and often serves as a mirror to society. The Drama And Theatre Studies Diploma provides a keen understanding of how drama has been used as a powerful tool for social commentary, influencing change and challenging the status quo.

But theatre is not confined to a particular region or culture. It is a global phenomenon. With this course, learners will journey across continents, exploring global theatre traditions, understanding how diverse cultures interpret and represent drama, and how regional nuances can give a completely different dimension to a play or performance.

In the contemporary era, technology plays an undeniable role in enhancing the theatre experience. From lighting to sound to visual effects, the integration of technology has transformed the way audiences experience theatre. This diploma sheds light on this symbiotic relationship, elaborating on how technology and theatre have come together to create magic on stage.

Lastly, any art form is incomplete without criticism. It is what shapes, refines, and sometimes even redefines art. The Drama And Theatre Studies Diploma introduces learners to the world of theatre criticism and reception. Here, they will understand the importance of critical reception, how critiques can influence a play’s success, and the role they play in the continuous evolution of theatre.

In summary, the Drama And Theatre Studies Diploma is not just a course; it’s an expedition into the mesmerising world of theatre. It’s designed for both beginners and seasoned theatre enthusiasts, providing a comprehensive, online, and engaging look into every aspect of drama and theatre studies. For those keen on delving deep into this art form, the journey begins here.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
