Psychology and Theatre Studies
What is Joint Honours?
A Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to study two subjects as one degree. This type of degree will broaden your skill set and enhance your career prospects. You can combine any two subjects as long as they’re in different zones, find out what you can combine this subject with.
You can choose to study psychology as a major, joint or minor subject as part of your joint honours degree. Your decision will determine how many psychology modules you'll study.
During the course you'll gain a detailed understanding of the different areas of psychology including developmental, social, biological, cognitive and health psychology. You can look at the applications of psychology to a wide range of areas, from understanding the nature and causes of mental health problems to investigating decision-making in real-life situations.
This course is taught by practising professional artists and active researchers with expertise in their own specialist fields. We will encourage you to explore the relationship between drama, theatre and performance and consider Theatre Studies from many different perspectives. You will encounter a wide variety of performance practice, as well as the theoretical concerns related to that practice. And you will connect to the practices at Derby Theatre and have the opportunity to engage in projects and extra-curricular activities at the Theatre.
