Dramatic Arts

Dramatic Arts (DART) provides many avenues for exploration through courses and theatre-making opportunities in world-class facilities and a welcoming community. We are a laboratory where creativity and intellectual rigour meet.

DART mounts an annual season of productions, directed and produced by students, faculty, guest artists, and staff working at the leading edges of performance research and practice. You may immerse yourself in work-integrated learning in creative and production roles, mentorships and project courses led by theatre professionals, internships and co-op placements with regional theatres, and research assistantships with faculty and visiting artist-scholars. Structured opportunities will translate your skills into professional theatre and other professional contexts.

You may choose courses from the following areas of concentration:

Drama in Education and Applied Theatre provides you with the knowledge and skills to use drama in classroom teaching, for social change and for community development.

Performance will unlock your potential as a stage actor, theatre artist and creator.

Production and Design prepares you for production work, crewing, design and other elements of technical theatre stagecraft.
