Bachelor of Dramatic Art - Course Overview

The Bachelor of Dramatic Art is a specialist degree with a holistic approach to theatre training. We seek to integrate higher education with professional development and spiritual formation in a supportive and caring environment. It provides an extensive introduction to all the major aspects of theatre.

The course is offered with three major strands of specialisation, and five minor pathways that students can choose depending on their passion and interests: Performance, Production and Theatre Practice.

Performance Practice

Prepares actors to compete in a highly rigorous industry. Acting, voice and movement skills are developed, with students exploring both theoretical and practical perspectives.

Production Practice

Provides an intellectual and artistic foundation for professional careers in the areas of design and stage management.  Grow in the confidence necessary to generate your own work and to participate successfully in a theatre company. Take the opportunity to supplement your passion with the skills, experiences and expertise for a career in theatre, film and television!

Theatre Practice

Offers a mixture of performance and production units in one program, enabling the development of well-rounded theatrical skills useful for work in small theatre companies, particularly in the area of theatre producing and directing. Paired with our Master of Teaching, it also satisfies the requirements for secondary Drama teaching.
