This course offers a state-of-the-art, performance-integrated structure that will help you pursue your professional and personal interests. The course provides specialist training in one of three major areas where students will develop technical, creative and performance skills that enhance their career opportunities. The drama and music theatre majors offer intensive technical training in performing arts areas such as singing, dancing and acting. The technical theatre major allows students to explore the production process and develop skills in stagecraft, stage and production management, lighting, sound and technical direction. Within a creative and supportive environment of performance-based training, students will have the opportunity to work in a number of full-scale productions in technical and creative roles. On completion, graduates will be a highly skilled and motivated creative performer that is ready for the workplace. For more course information, visit Bachelor of Theatre.
Students may study units where they will be involved in the production of a staged theatre performance on campus, in a range of theatrical styles. Students work with industry mentors and staff in a simulated theatre company environment.
