BA (Dramatic Arts)/BEd

Bachelor of Arts - Dramatic Arts/ Bachelor of Education

This five-year combined degree program allows you to graduate with two degrees. Drama enables you to share your artistic knowledge and guide the process of producing a play from beginning to end. The Education degree focuses on three professional semesters, which provide practical experience through supervised placements in schools. With hand-on experiences in fundamental elements of performance, design and technical theatre, you develop applied skills in every facet of the discipline.

Courses in theatre history and theory provide a well-rounded appreciation of the past, present, and future of theatre. Our program includes the flexibility to pursue additional drama topics of your specific interest.

Students interested in teaching elementary school are encouraged to pursue the Bachelor of Arts-Dramatic Arts/Bachelor of Education degree. The flexibility of this stream will allow students to gain a diversified set of qualifications which will better meet the needs of multi-subject teaching common in elementary schools.
