The Bachelor of Dramatic Art has an optional exit point after two years of full-time study (or equivalent). Students wishing to exit after the first two years of the degree will be awarded the Associate Degree of Dramatic Art.

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.

Potential Students

The course is particularly suited to:

  • Those looking for a acting career and the degree to take you there
  • Students who want an exposure to a variety of pathways e.g. Acting, Production & Theatre Practice
