Receive two degrees in five years by combining your studies in drama education from K-12. Choose to become a drama specialist in the classroom by combining your love of drama and teaching with either the highly specialized BFA focussing on acting, stagecraft, design, and directing, or a BA with broader studies in science, social sciences, humanities and your drama major.
The breadth of our program enables you to share your artistic knowledge in various educational contexts and to guide the entire process of producing a play from beginning to end.
As an Education major, you will develop a strong knowledge base in the subject area you intend to teach. Receive in-depth preparation in how to teach, including both general and subject area instructional methods.
Which Faculty to choose?
Both the Bachelor of Fine Arts – Dramatic Arts or the Bachelor of Arts (Dramatic Arts) combined with a Bachelor of Education programs are 5-year combined degrees with K-12 experience through the Faculty of Education. Choosing between the two programs is dependent on the amount of drama courses you would like to have in your major.
Students interested in teaching Jr. High or High School are encouraged to pursue the Bachelor of Fine Arts - Dramatic Arts/Bachelor of Education degree. This stream offers a more focused fine arts approach which will allow students to build expertise in the drama field, enabling students to take the reins of secondary-level drama education.
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.
