We offer a 3-year Bachelor of Arts (BA) with a concentration in Drama, and a Drama minor through our Bachelor of Arts, Science or Management programs.
The Drama Department faculty comprises an experienced group of practicing artists dedicated to providing a personal learning experience, enabling you to explore various disciplines and develop your creative potential.
You set the stage for your education by gaining experience though courses in public speaking, acting, directing, technical production, theatrical design, and theatre for young audiences.
In this time of change and considerable upheaval, we continue to strive to build a supportive and creative environment where students are able to explore the art of creating theatre. To that end, we are working hard to prepare for the Fall 2020 term online. Check out these videos to learn more.
All of this culminates to a final capstone project offering the opportunity for further exploration of your specific interests.
Through the Fall and Winter terms, you will also have the opportunity to audition, volunteer and perform in two mainstage productions as actors and technicians. You may also participate in various workshops and the One-Act Play Festival held twice a year, sponsored by Concordia’s Drama Club, The GTC.
