The study of Theatre & Dramatic Arts provides you with a vibrant and varied experience in the world of theatre, combining the excitement of live productions with studies in literature, acting, directing, design and technical production.
The insights of playwrights, concepts of directors and designers, interpretations of actors, organization of stage managers, and expertise of theatre technicians are all part of the intoxicating appeal of live theatre.
Previous experience in drama is not a prerequisite for entry into this program, which provides a broad focus and the flexibility for students to shape their studies to reflect specific areas of interests.
You study aspects of theatre performance and production as well as theatre history, theory, and criticism. You also participate, in some capacity, in the annual series of major productions presented by the Department of Theatre and Dramatic Arts. Through a combination of academic study and practical experience, you develop knowledge and skills that prepare you to be imaginative, flexible, adaptable, and creative.
