This programme will prepare you to enter the costume industry as designers and makers across a wide range of professional environments including live theatre, film, television, festivals, dance & light entertainment and performance. In addition, it will equip you with skills necessary to work in the areas of costume & wardrobe supervision, costume crafts, music video design and styling, and museums and heritage events.
BA (Hons) Costume Design is built on strong industry links and you will have the opportunity to work on industry-led briefs and collaborate with students from a range of our other programmes in performance, film production, television, music, and design. The programme also includes a 40 credit work placement module at level 5.
Salford University has a very hands-on approach to Design. Through a series of practical project-led modules, you will gain a sound understanding of the costume design and production processes and have the opportunity to apply your creativity to a range of situations. You will learn how to analyse and interpret scripts, generate concepts and present your ideas to industry standard.
You will develop strong technical and craft skills in workshop practice, including construction techniques, pattern cutting and textile manipulation. This will be supported by a solid understanding of costume history.
