Concentrations

Concentration in Drama in Education and Applied Theatre

This focuses on drama outside traditional theatre spaces, including theatre in the community, in hospitals, in prisons and in educational settings. Students who choose this concentration often pursue careers as drama teachers or arts workers.

Concentration in Performance

Students in the Concentration in Performance develop the foundations of stage performance, while engaging in script analysis, critical and reflective writing and speaking and creative research, allowing them to develop as “actor creators,” theatre artists who can create their own work.

Concentration in Production and Design

Students in the Concentration in Production and Design develop a fundamental understanding of, and ability to apply, approaches to design and technology. They respond to dramatic texts and creative processes, engage with emerging and innovative technologies and study visual and spatial histories.

Concentration in Theatre Praxis

In the Concentration in Theatre Praxis, students examine various relationships between performance theory and performance practice. Emphasis is placed on the ability to think, write and speak critically about the cultural, historical and material relations of theatre and performance.
