Department of Theatre

The Department of Theatre offers programs that blend practical training with the study of theatre history and theory designed to suit a variety of interests and career paths. Students enjoy small classes, high student-teacher contact time, and hands-on training in some of the most modern theatre facilities in Canada.

Each year we present a full season of plays, to provide students with plenty of opportunities for professional training. As students collaborate in the creation of theatre events, they put course work into practice, develop their individual skills, and learn to solve problems. In addition, students are supervised in professional field experience through the Department's outreach and enrichment projects.

We are committed to training artists and scholars: creative individuals who are well-versed in the interpretative and critical aspects of theatre arts. Students in all programs take courses in the other fine arts, the humanities and the sciences, to supplement a series of courses in dramaturgy, theatre history and literature. This combination of practical work and interpretative study provides students with a rich and well-balanced learning experience.
