Program Description
Dramatic Art offers you a welcoming community and a thriving and energized student experience that will challenge and prepare you for a lifelong career as a theatre artist, teacher, and/or arts leader. We offer you a strong, participatory liberal arts degree in theatre studies. This program makes it possible for you to customize your degree to meet your career goals as a theatre practitioner/artist by choosing to study a concentration in the areas of performance, history/theory, and/or design/technical theatre.
The option to combine your theatre degree with a secondary area of study in the arts and social sciences is also a popular route. The opportunity to earn a certificate in arts management while completing this degree provides you with the added professional training through internships with local arts organizations.
For those students who desire a broad exposure to the theatre, courses in acting, improvisation, contemporary theatre and Canadian theatre practice, directing, and television production are available.
This degree prepares you for direct entry into the theatre profession or, perhaps, could lead you towards graduate studies for further learning and specialization.
