Why choose Drama, English & Languages?

As a Drama student, you will join a vibrant and dynamic department. Our dedicated rehearsal space and drama studio will encourage you to develop your understanding of professional working theatre.

Studying English and/or modern languages at Callywith College will help you to expand your horizons and develop the ability to think critically about the world around you. By studying English, you will have the opportunity to explore both linguistic and literary texts within the genres of poetry, prose, drama and a range of non-literary texts such as speeches, text messages and advertisements. Your skills in self-expression, analysis and academic writing will develop as you read widely, research independently and are encouraged to convey your ideas effectively and creatively.

We live in an increasingly globalised world so there has never been a better time to study a modern language. You will study the language, culture, history and literature of French, German or Spanish speaking countries, developing new perspectives and independent research skills.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in foreign trips such as Valencia, Andalucía, Brittany or Goettingen - staying with host families, attending lessons at local language schools and visiting cultural and historic sites - a fantastic way to hone your speaking skills.
