Bachelor of Theatre
University of Southern Queensland - Online

Course outline

If you want to work in the theatre and entertainment industries, you need to be able to make your own work. This program focuses on professional theatre practice so you can accumulate authentic learning for entry into the industry. The theatre making major introduces students to the rigorous theory and practice in generating original work. Here, you will adapt theatre skills and processes for communities and educators, in order to deliver sustainable community-participatory creative arts projects. The theatre acting major introduces students to the established processes of interpretative performance for live and digital modes of delivery. This major then guides students through the skills and knowledge in generating original performance material and outcomes. In the final year of study both majors develop projects which provide students with authentic learning for a broad range of career pathways. If you are an innovative, empathetic, and collaborative theatre practitioner, this program will increase your competitive edge by teaching you how to make new dramatic works for entertainment, community arts, education, health and the environmental agencies.
