Theatre Studies BA
The Theatre Studies program at Guelph is a degree option within the B.A. Program and is dedicated to the integrated study of both academic and practical applications of drama and theatre. Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that the study of theatre at the university level engages various disciplinary practices, both practical and academic, and therefore we attempt to provide both practical theatre experience and classroom study. We offer a wide range of courses in dramatic literature, theatre history, criticism and theory, together with directing, acting, dramaturgy, design, technical theatre, playwriting and screenwriting, as well as media studies. The program has a special interest in the drama and theatre of Canada, and course offerings reflect this concentration where appropriate.
The faculty at Guelph includes renowned, award-winning scholars and theatre practitioners, and our proximity to the lively theatre scene in our immediate geographic locale enables us to bring celebrated practitioners and scholars to campus as guest speakers and guest lecturers, and to incorporate attendance at current theatre productions in the curriculum.
