The Theatre Studies Programme consists of both practical and theory papers. The practical papers involve group-based studies and focus on both the practice and the theory of performance. The theory papers, while often including practical work, focus more on writing by and about significant theatre practitioners and theatre performance.
Theatre Studies is available as a major for the Bachelor of Arts. Theatre Studies may also be taken as a second major or as a minor, subject to academic approval of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled.
To complete Theatre Studies as a single major, students must gain 135 points from papers listed for Theatre Studies, including 105 points above 100 level, and 60 points above 200 level. Students must complete THSTS101.
