The Drama program helps you build physical, creative and intellectual capacities through practice-based learning and collaborative performance creation.

In the studio setting, you will explore a combination of acting, improvisation and devising theory and practice along with different performance styles and processes, theatre history, text studies and digital theatre crafts. You will have the opportunity to work on individual and group creative projects where you will gain a comprehensive knowledge of ensemble creation and production management.

You may find employment in independent theatre companies, community theatre, drama associations, drama education, film and television production, performing arts centres and for further postgraduate study.
