THEATRE & PERFORMANCE
(FORMERLY DRAMATIC ARTS)
The division of Theatre & Performance offers a four year undergraduate professional degree (Honours equivalent) in theatre and performing arts, known as the BADA degree. It combines a focused, discipline-specific foundation in areas of specialisation with a flexible, interdisciplinary programme to enhance student innovation and experimentation and preparation for the world of work or further study. The BADA degree is not a conservatory style-programme that focuses only on practical training. All students studying theatre and performance are expected to successfully complete an academic programme in conjunction with the practical training components of the degree.
We also offer postgraduate degrees at Honours, Masters and Doctoral levels.
