meet a drama student

The Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. The centre's own core courses focus on the program fields of Theatre History, Dramatic Theory, and Dramaturgy. Within the parameters of these fields, the centre supports research in such areas as performance analysis and reception; Canadian, American, feminist and post-colonial theatre; Elizabethan and Restoration staging; historiography and performance; acting and modern staging theories and practices; and play development. Through affiliations with other graduate units, students may also take courses in drama and theatre from the other departments, centres, and institutes across the Faculty.

Graduate students build on the kind of foundation that would normally be laid in four years of undergraduate study with a concentration in dramatic literature. Theatre is an integral part of graduate work in the centre and it takes place, for the most part, in the context of workshops, student productions, and co-productions at the Robert Gill and Studio Theatres.
