Bachelor of Creative Arts (Drama)
Queensland University of Technology - Kelvin Grove

Course outline

This course offers you the opportunity to explore many roles onstage and behind the scenes as you investigate what makes drama tick. You’ll learn about what’s come before in the history of drama so you can change what happens next. You’ll combine theory, skills and practice as you explore the rich possibilities that theatre and performance hold to entertain, engage and transform our view of the world. You’ll collaborate with others to create new performances that are built to surprise.

Theatre necessarily combines many fields of creative practice, so drama graduates tend to be curious, versatile and able to adapt quickly to a rapidly changing creative environment. They’re the people we call on to find out not only why, but how drama works.

This course is covered by the QUT Offer Guarantee and Year 12 Early Offer Scheme.
