You will take 3 compulsory modules and 1 optional module, one of the compulsory modules will involve methodological training in qualitative social science. We have a packed schedule of social events throughout the year, such as bar crawls in Leamington Spa, society meals, and the infamous circling before POP! Warwick Politics Society is a place to discover politics, but we also love to have a good time and meet new people.

The term Scenography derives from the Greek sceno-grafika and can be understood as ‘writing in space’. The practice of Scenography is concerned with the dramaturgical exploration of space, the parameters of which might be described as all that exists in the performance space pertaining to the senses, for example the visual/aural language of the performance. This module will allow you to explore Scenography as a complex system of signs by which we can both examine and imagine the potential of space, through decoding/encoding the performative space.

Admissions panels or committees will always include at least one member of academic staff who has undertaken appropriate training. If your first language is not English, you may need to provide evidence that you meet this requirement. The minimum scores required to meet the University’s higher level are detailed in the table below. Research or working experience that is relevant to your proposed study may provide further evidence of your academic potential. If your degree is not from the UK or another country specified above, visit our International Qualifications page for guidance on the qualifications and grades that would usually be considered to meet the University’s minimum entry requirements.

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact the society via the Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages, or any of the committee members. We only exist to provide services for our members, so your feedback really is important to us. The Politics Ball is a flagship event in the University of Warwick social calendar.

Weekly lectures will provide detailed context and provocations for further discussion/debate. Topics addressed will include late 20th and 21st century gay and lesbian theatre, postmodern feminist performance art, and queer identities broadly defined. Through the critical analysis of 20th-century case studies, you will develop an understanding of the adoption of avant garde techniques from Dada to Live Art to ‘In Yer Face’ realism. This module explores the relationship between visual art and theatre in both the pre-war, historical avant-gardes- such as Futurism, Dada and Surrealism- and some of the post-war, neo avant-gardes. Apart from obvious points of contact such as stage design, we will try to understand the relation between theatrical writing and performance, through art and visual imagery.

  • Texts may include new plays, radical re-workings of existing texts, adaptations from other media and verbatim.
  • In the first year, you must complete core classes and tutorials in European Governance and a programme of research methods training, which includes core courses in statistics and research design and specialised elective courses.
  • This module addresses historical and contemporary links between avant garde theatre practices and political activism.
  • Likewise, we aim to inspire our members to develop a deeper understanding of the institutions and corporations that govern our everyday lives and encourage students to challenge and connect with these ideologies.

Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for the programme. We are a very active community and have ongoing projects such as the Pocket Politics Podcast and The PolSoc Paper. Longer life span, air travel and social media have all changed the modern papacy and challenged cherished Catholic traditions along the way.

Contexts of Practice

Students will be assessed as a group for the presentation, but individual marks will be adjusted based on evidence of each student’s contributions. Phase 2 runs from week 4 to week 9 (omitting week 6 – reading week) of the Spring term and allows you to engage more fully with an elected Scenographic Discipline through Specialist Workshops . Year 2 presents more option choices as you dig deeper into particular areas of interest.

However, as part of your course requirements, you may need to choose a dissertation, a project or a thesis topic. Please note that, depending on your choice of topic and the research required to complete it, you may incur additional expenses, such as travel and vaccination expenses, conference attendance, research expenses, and field trips. You will need to meet these additional costs, although you may be able to apply for small grants from your department and/or college to help you cover some of these expenses. Supported by appropriate instruction from lectures and tutorials, this module also develops independent research skills, provides a chance to engage with material of personal interest, and offers the possibility of laying claim to a specific area of study. That chosen subject may build upon skills and knowledge gained during the degree or it may pursue suitable material not substantially addressed elsewhere on the course. It may be that the chosen subject area corresponds to a staff research interest; most importantly it should be an area for which the student feels both enthusiasm and curiosity.

Upcoming Events

It will be taught by experienced theatre-makers, mainly in seminar-workshops involving analysis of text, practical exercises, lecture inputs and discussion.

If you are not a national of a majority English speaking country, then your degree must be no more than three and a half years old at the beginning of your programme of study.
