These and other factors are challenging our extant notions of individual and collective identity and culture, as well as community. This course explores Greek plays in their original performance context and in the context of modern theatre. It examines the social, political and religious role of theatre in ancient Athenian society, and reflects on some of the ways in which Greek theatre has been translated, adapted and re-imagined in later cultures. Can the performance of transgressive genders and sexualities create challenges to these norms, or do we inevitably reproduce dominant frames of power and belonging?

Seminars will offer students the opportunity to focus on praxis; working with their peers to create presentations and provocations that explore how theory relates to practice. Join a community – our alumni are involved as mentors and allies, our staff are friendly and accessible, and we promote a supportive and generous working culture. In all these contexts, performance has the capacity to be an agent of positive change. We have a conviction that our students can play a crucial role as the next generation creating that change.

Questions of Performance

Whilst you must register three referees, the department may start the assessment of your application if two of the three references are submitted by the course deadline and your application is otherwise complete. Please note that you may still be required to ensure your third referee supplies a reference for consideration. The essays may be written specially for the application or may have been produced for other purposes, for instance as a coursework submission within a previous degree programme. Essays that comprise extracts or excerpted sections from longer pieces are acceptable but should be prefaced with a brief note that places them in context.

How youll be assessed

As we expect candidates to apply to a range of subjects, we will look not for subject relevance in the personal statement; instead, we are interested in the intellectual coherence of the statement. We would encourage all candidates, therefore, to demonstrate why they would wish to study at university, what interests them and why, and what stimulates them intellectually. However, where an applicant is completing/has completed a degree, we are able to consider the degree study as part of the assessment of the application. We make contextual offers for this programme, which can be found in the entry requirements. As part of the assessment process, we take into account contextual information to gain a more complete picture of each application. Bath University Politics Society is the society for any student with a keen interest in politics.

Graduate destinations

The session, covered by our Graduate Admissions and Student Recruitment teams, provides helpful information about the process of applying for graduate study, as well as offering an insight into what we consider to be a competitive application. The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, presentations, discussions, workshops, practical classes and field trips . Dissertation seminars provide opportunities to meet previous MSc students to discuss their dissertations and subsequent career. The programme encourages small-group discussions of conceptual debates about practices of environment and geo-politics, drawing on fellow students’ diversity of nationalities and academic and work backgrounds.
