Course Overview

This programme introduces students to dramatic literature, theatre history and practical theatre, including acting. The programme is practice-based, with much of the teaching done through workshops. Students will benefit from strong links already forged with the theatre community. NUI Galway has a rich tradition in the arts: several of our former students have founded theatre companies locally, nationally and internationally.

Dynamic partnerships

NUI Galway has formed a number of very exciting partnerships with prominent creative arts organisations. Performing Arts Studies students enjoy a unique opportunity to interact with professional actors, directors and theatre practitioners. Partner organisations include the renowned Druid Theatre Company, the international Galway Arts Festival and An Taibhdhearc, the National Irish Language theatre. Other local and national partnerships are currently being developed. 

What subject choices will I have?

This specialism is delivered in the timetable of Arts subject Group Five and, therefore, may not be studied with Sociological and Political Studies, Information Technology, Welsh or Léann an Aistriúcháin. Students should contact the Programme Director for further advice on timetabling and subject choice restrictions and should be aware that some classes will be delivered in the evenings.

Glossary of Terms

Credits
You must earn a defined number of credits (aka ECTS) to complete each year of your course. You do this by taking all of its required modules as well as the correct number of optional modules to obtain that year's total number of credits.
Module
An examinable portion of a subject or course, for which you attend lectures and/or tutorials and carry out assignments. E.g. Algebra and Calculus could be modules within the subject Mathematics. Each module has a unique module code eg. MA140.
Subject
Some courses allow you to choose subjects, where related modules are grouped together. Subjects have their own required number of credits, so you must take all that subject's required modules and may also need to obtain the remainder of the subject's total credits by choosing from its available optional modules.
Optional
A module you may choose to study.
Required
A module that you must study if you choose this course (or subject).
Required Core Subject
A subject you must study because it's integral to that course.
Semester
Most courses have 2 semesters (aka terms) per year, so a three-year course will have six semesters in total. For clarity, this page will refer to the first semester of year 2 as 'Semester 3'.

Work Placement

Study Abroad

In their third year, students studying a modern language as one or more of their subjects combine studying it in a country where this is the native tongue with the study of the theatrical practice and culture of their hosts. Students not studying languages remain in Ireland and participate in off-campus workshops developed by qualified practitioners, as well as working with a professional director on a stage production.

What Our Students Say

Roisin

Roisin Dolan |   BA Connect (Theatre and Performance)

One of my favourite things about my first year of this course was that through studying theatre and performance, I got the chance to meet a really great group of people and at the beginning of the year found myself immediately surrounded by fifteen new friends who share the same love for theatre as I do. With this course I am given the chance to work with theatre professionals and explore all aspects of theatre both in practice and theory. Classes involve a large amount of practical work, meaning that each classmate is very active within the class which makes a great difference from sitting in lecture halls all day. I think I speak on behalf of myself and my classmates when I say that I really cannot wait to see what the next three years of the course are going to bring.
