Bachelor's programme in Drama and Theatre Studies

Drama and Theatre Studies

Drama and theatre students rehearsing on stage

Drama and Theatre Studies embraces a variety of expressions based on acting and playing.

In the bachelor's programme in Drama and Theatre studies students will study these expressions as means of communication and experiential objects, their past and present roles in society and culture, and how they shape and disseminate meaning.

The object of study and research are therefore identified within the theatre as institution, as well as in other cultural contexts such as schools, leisure time activities and social work in western and non-western contexts.

The drama and theatre study at NTNU has a practical-theoretical approach to the discipline. The course of study has an historical and a contemporary basis, and important sources are dramatic texts, performances and productions, as well as practical experiences from the artistic, pedagogical, ritual and therapeutic fields.

During the study of drama and theatre the students should develop:

  • a critical understanding of past and present expressions of drama and theatre.
  • the ability to accomplish various academic projects and the ability to reflect upon the relationship between theory and practice.
  • creative skills aimed at various professional capabilities.

This program of study is taught in Norwegian only.
