Drama and Theatre

Drama and Theatre - Bachelor's Programme

The language of instruction in this programme is Norwegian. Read more about the programme on the Norwegian website

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

In the Bachelor's programme in Drama and Theatre, 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 objects of study and research are therefore identified within the theatre as an institution, as well as in other cultural contexts such as schools, leisure time activities, and social work in western and non-western contexts.

About the programme

The drama and theatre study at NTNU has a practical-theoretical approach to the discipline. Our programme has a 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.
